Default Overheating Engine

Need a bit of help, I have a 02' Peugeot 307 1.6 and it had a leaking radiator which I replaced and checked there isn't any more leaks.

It is still overheating though, I was wondering if it could be the thermostat, water pump or wrong coolant.

Is this the right coolant "TRIPLE QX Blue Antifreeze/Coolant 5Ltr" found on eurocar parts.


Thanks for any help.

Red is the better coolant but blue will be ok just needs changing more often. Did you fully bleed the system using the bleed point as you may have an airlock

Okay thanks I will use red next time I change it. Where is the bleed point? at the bottom of the radiator?

Nope, there are at least two, pretty high up in the piping. Haynes manual details where they are.

Heater outlet hose(might need battery removed to help access) and on some models(does not state which) on top of the cooling housing on the left hand end of the cylinder head.
