    Bleed oil pump

    A plumber would most likely have as much idea of how to vent an oil pump as you. Yes you have been trying to vent from the wrong place and would likely cause a lot of damage If the boiler was to fire. You need to get in a technician experienced in oil.

    Turning off Hot Water to Taps

    Boiler Relocation cost

    Oyster card costs money. Agile must be on bus pass by now judging by his mug shot so should be cheaper. (I am pushing 71 and he looks a lot older than me!)

    Connecting the Outlet pipe to the gas meter

    central heating pump size

    I think you are saying that the boiler is ok on hot water alone but overheating on heating alone call. (The comma appears to be in the wrong place) My view is the three port is at fault rather than the pump.
