Either got it air-locked, did you bleed the system. Or the headgasket could be blown.....

Nice one matey, we wouldn't be human if we didn't drop the odd Bo**ock now and again and bloody hell I've dropped plenty and I should know better. At least you are sorted and back running again.

Happy Berlingoing
