Temp gauge is fine and I had this issue before I put the snake oil in.

 

I need to look closer at WIS but I think there are two small rubber hoses off the back of the waterpump & one of them may connect to the heater return, so if that blocks up then it'd cause the issue I'm getting.

 

As before I'm ignoring the waterpump until I move as I need it working. Especially at the moment as my bike is in bits awaiting a throttle cable. The supplier being helpful* noticed I'd setup a new account so merged with my old account & sent it to the old delivery address. Handy that as the only reason I  setup a new account was because their system refused to save my current address every time I updated it....

Fit an auxiliary water pump from a merc or something in the heater circuit to push water through wether it likes it or not?

That's more effort than fixing it properly...

What is the coolant change in the service history like? I can't remember but it should have been changed regularly and on time. If so, I'd be surprised if it's clogged up.
Current Fleet:
1974 MGB GT - A stereotypical classic car.
2007 Honda Civic EX CTDi - The reliable runner that is like the family pet.
2010 Aldi A4 - Owned to placate the wife on my crap buying


My history: 2003 Clio II 1.2 16v (First car), 2003 Honda Civic 3dr 1.7 CTDi (Isuzu lump), 1992 Mazda MX5 1.6, 2005 Mazda RX8 192bhp, 2005 Saab 9-3 1.9TiD 150bhp, 2007 Honda Civic 2.2 CTDi, 2004 Renault Scenic 1.6 Auto (Now Kiltox FiL), 2004 Saab 9-5 2.3t (Now Hooli), 2004 Smart Roadster 80bhp
Wife history (that she used/owned but I had frequent use of): 2002 Renault Clio II 1.2 16v (Billabong!), 2006 Mazda MX5 1.8, 2004 VW Golf 1.6 FSI, 2005 Renault Scenic II 2.0 (went bad from the drive back when buying it!), 2002 Vauxhall Astra 1.6 16v (now phil_lihp ex-colleague), 2005 Renault Laguna II v6 (Now angle)

No idea, I've not even get around to checking if it's ever had a waterpump!

 

It's been changed twice since I've got it & flushes out clean. Which isn't to say it's not had snake oil in the past that's nearly blocked a hose or pipe.

No real news to report but this tidy number came up this morning on the way to work.
