But i am glad it's sorted for you
I didn't have any spare cash to get a new thermo so removed the thermostat from the housing. Not seeing any changes I sort of ruled out that the thermostat was the problem. I was pretty wrong about that. It was letting air in.

But im happy now. I have the bits in the cooling system sorted because of it.. new expansion tank, radiator sealed, new water pump and belt.

The way i see it is if I found the source of the issue earlier I may not have done the things above. . So im kinda happy i didn't change the thermostat until now.
