Astra J 1.4T Overheating
#1
Hi all looking for advice

My Astra has recently started having overheating problems, Its had a new Thermostat and the waterpump has been removed and checked and is functioning correctly but it still seems to overheat, It'll sit happily on 90 during idle but after 3-5 minutes of driving it'll overheat and creep upto the 110-130 mark and advise the engine has overheated and to idle the engine. I was wondering if anyone else has had an issue like this and what my next steps should be?

Airlock maybe or coolant temperature sensor maybe?

Coolant Temp Sensor is built into the thermostat from what i can see, Every time I've had to replace coolant I've vacuum bled it afterwards. I'm really picking my brain on what else it could be

UPDATE: After checking the breather/return pipe we've uncovered it had been glued back together (by a previous owner) after being broken and then caused the pipe to block, causing the engine to overheat
