Several problems
multispace, 1.6 petrol, 03 plate

Indicator stalk feels loose, and wiggling it causes clock display to dim

Central locking becoming temperamental. Doors all shut, but interior light flashes as though a door is still open

Then today, heater only blowing warm air. Drove for about 200 miles and STOP light came up on dash. Temp gauge then shot up, no other warning lights on dash. Stopped car, let it cool down. Radiator fan working, but coolant tank empty. Added coolant. Drove final 3 miles home. Temp gauge going up and down, then STOP light came back on. Wife following behind said it looked like exhaust blowing, but it was a cold night, so is this normal? Checked radiator once home and coolant pouring out (no sludge visible), but cant see where leak is from. Checked dipstick, oil normal colour/consistency.

About 4m ago, fan was overrunning. Faulty switch replaced and been ok since.

Does it sound like the head has gone? If so, what is cost of repair?
Your water problem could be your water pump leaking, old berlingos are like an old man, trouble keeping water in, with water pipes cracking and perishing, seals drying out and leaky/creaky joints.
If the coolant is coming from behind the right hand engine area/behind offside front wheel with the engine running it is most likely your pump.

To check your c/head gasket, fill up the tank and run the engine without the cap on, see if there is a lot of bubbles and water being thrown out of tank then I would suspect head gasket. provided the bleeder pipe from the cylinder head to the tank is not blocked ( the small diameter rubber pipe)
