Have system evacuated and charged system is clogged up
You may have air pockets trap in the cooling system.
No, but they can cause it to overheat
Open the t/stat bleed valve or if there is a radiator petcock. run the engine while servicing as they are prone to air pockets in the cooling system.
system running hot fans not running
Air in the system. Bleed the cooling system and remove any trapped air pockets.
Should bleed all vehicles after the system has work done to it to get rid of air pockets
You'll need a vacuum pump that is used by AC service technicians.
Not if the cooling system is operating properly.
No, regular flushes of the cooling system are necessary to keep mineral deposits from forming on the inside of the engine and radiator. Mineral deposits can partially clog the cooling system and form an insulating barrier that will keep your cooling system from working properly.
my 97 lumina has the same problem. the user manual says that the security system is not working properly. it will not cause problems, but the system should be checked by a technician. hope this puts you to rest, it did me....:)
There may not be one, My 2000 Lumina has a plug on the lower drivers side of the radiator that can be replaced with a petcock. Rather than do this I removed the lower radiator hose to facilitate flushing the cooling system.
pop the radiater cap off and let the van engine run for 30 minutes. this will burp out any air in the cooling system and your engine will not overheat then. afterwards, fill the radiater back up as needed.
