By all accounts the 2.0 litre doesn't have the special requirements for bleeding the coolant system that the diesel and v6 do. Apart from that there's nothing incredibly difficult or special about a Bongo I reckon so you could consider general recommendations on a local 'old school' garage/mechanics and maybe start them off with a basic service and check over (oil, filters, spark plugs, brakes etc and coolant change if it is due for one). There's a recommended garages list in the members area also which you could check out.

No problem. Hopefully a Suffolk based owner will chip in with a recommendation
