The above assumes that my diesel Granvia is the same as all the other diesels. The "cooling problems" associated with the Granvia are due to the incorrect type of coolant being used and causing corrosion and localised hot spots in the head which then leads to the cracking and warping of the cylinder head. The recommended coolant is the Toyota Red fluid - can be expensive but a lot cheaper than a new cylinder head. However a premium quality coolant fluid can be used but never top up the coolant level with water when you use one of these coolant fluids.

Sorry to hear that Mike. I hope we shall still benefit from your wisdom in future?
