    hi, the best way to remove the air lock is to remove the cap from the expansion tank, have the heater on max and the blower on full and the let the car tickover for 20 minutes or so. have some water on hand for topping up. hope this helps.

    Normally takes a couple of years for a diesel to get warm so get a chair and a tv close by
