I recently bought my first corrado, the first day of driving it it overheated but only after 30miles! i let it cool then replaced with water. got it home nice and steady and was ok stayed at 95-100 degrees, once home disconnected the bottom hose and flushed the system and once again ran ok for about 20 or so miles put my foot down then overheated again, when i say overheated i mean doing a great wee on the floor it was bouncing hot, thought about a low temp therm switch, oh and fan comes on once i turn the engine off so bit too late really, please help!!!!

So it overheated before you replaced the radiator and continues to overheat? Have you changed the thermostat and attempted to flush the cooling system?
Another item to check would be to make sure the electric cooling fan (assuming your Corsa uses one) is running as the temperature climbs. If your car uses a belt-driven fan, then the fan clutch may be bad or the blades of the fan may be damaged. This assumes no one has removed the fan shroud for some reason.
There's not much you can do short of fixing the engine. When it overheated, the metal in the cylinders may have warped, and the head gasket may have started leaking. The oil is being burned thru the cylinders and out the tail pipe.
Hi All your love, Lucky boy, The vehicle is fairly old and I suspect it has a points and condenser ignition system. Renew the points and replace the condenser. Set the gap to .45 mm and then set up the firing position by loosening the distributor locking base and setting it at 6 degrees before top dead center. I think it is not a fuel problem but instead, ignition timing. Regards John
it looks like that you cooling fan is not working, check the fan when temperature is up if its not working than check the fuse for the cooling fan, if its ok than check the current at the fan end if you fund the current the fan is faulty replace the cooling fan.
I had the exact same problem. The cooling fan was failing to come on and thus overheating the engine. Check the cooling fan, cooling fan thermoswitch, and cooling fan relay ( behind drivers headlight ). If you pull the connector off of the thermoswitch the fan will come on whenever the car is in "run"
