thanks for the advice guys, :buttrock: i filled the system from top filler and got alot of fluid in. the 'surging' has calmed down but im only getting a tiny amount of 'just warm air' on hottest setting of heater. however the engine dosent seem to get very hot either, the guage stops well before half way. could there be no thermostat in? i am new to rangies and dont know what is 'normal' running.also how easy is it to fit new hydraulic tappets as they are noisy and worse the hotter it gets, ive priced the parts and cant beleive how cheap they are!(im used to bmw prices :bawling: )is it worth doing the pushrods as a matter of course?ty again speerzie.

It is a good chance that you have no thermostat.
I would also expect that something could be clogged. Perish the thought but you need to beaware of it.
My 93LWB runs right in the middle and I have had a clogged radiator (twice) and a blown head gasket for some time.
