    VW Diesel engine problems

    Looking for any suggestions on where to turn next

    Neighbour has Skoda Octavia which once you drive for about 10 minutes overheats. Idles in driveway fine

    Have replaced the water pump and thermostat. Checked hoses for any that might be soft. Used garden hose to flush water through block with hoses off and all runs fine. Also same through the radiator

    No sign of any deposits on oil filler cap and oil appears OK

    Where to look next?

    Using a hose to run water through a radiator won't reveal blocked tubes unless almost entirely blocked.
