It may have had a new thermostat, but don't assume that it has been fitted properly or that the new unit isn't kaput. Assumption is the mother of all f***ups in this game.

So, 5 options that need to be systematically eliminated:

1) The matrix. it's already suspect if some idiot has been sticking eggs in the coolant. also, if someone has been fannying with the matrix check that the pipes to it aren't trapped or kinked.

2) Thermostat.

3) The heater cock. Check the cable is properly connevted and moves the lever properly.

4) The egg adding antics may have fouled something up - whatever the cause is you want to do a reverse flush of the entire cooling system using reasonable water pressure, then go round the offenders house and pistol whip him severely.

5) Check the system is bled properly. The 306 and it's ZX cousin are notorious for being difficult to bleed. There are, however, two tricks that make it easy peasy, but your average home spanner monkey (especially if he's the sort of twot that puts egg in the coolant) won't know them.

Not much else to go wrong on one of those. Any leaking pipework etc will be very quickly apparent.

It's gimps like our egg toting twonk friend who will get us banned from maintaining our own cars, and when the law changes to make it compulsory for a registered garage to do all maintenance then we'll know who to blame.

Victor you`ll be looking for the lonely sad and ugly section but before going there finish your bottle of vodka , tell your girlfriend that you`ll be back in a minute , oh thats right you can`t she dumped you and slept with your best mate because you have a small willy then sink some pills and go upstairs , when you get there open the window and jump because i think you`re super man.
