Overheating, blow out through exspansion container
My Fiat cinquecento is overheating, and the cooling fluid is blown out through the overheating valve in the exspansion drum. Next to this when setting the car heater to full warmth, it still is blowing cold air. Does this mean that the thermostath is broken or is it the waterpump??

The clutch in the Fiat stilo abarth selespeed uses the same fluid as the braking system. Just find the container in the engine bay with the braking fluid. And top up with ''DOT 4 Brake & Clutch Fluid'' Note it's not the oild for the Gearbox or selespeed. You should never touch the container that holds the fluid for the Selespeed.
Take it to a shop or get yourself a repair manual to find out the proper steps to raise or remove the engine to make space for the starter to be removed. You need 4 jack stands and a floor jack and large wooden blocks. You should have a friend to assist you with the floor jack. also, for safety in case the car should fall.
fluid coming out of the vents indicates a faulty heater core, but this does not explain the overheating problem. The blown heater core may only be the result. Check the coolant level.Check for coolant leaks primarily at the water pump. Check the thermostat by insuring both hoses to and from the radiator warm up. Check for foamy oil or white smoke from the exhaust indicating a blown head gasket or cracked head. Check to ensure your cooling fan is working.
