A sure fire way: get the nose of vehicle up like on a incline on a driveway then remove rad cap and let idle for about 20 minutes. It helps to increase idle speed also to open the thermostat.

You may have air pockets trap in the cooling system.

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.

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.

the air conditioner is separate from your cooling system. intrepids are prone to overheating, and i think it is because the radiator is too small to properly vent heat.AnswerCooling system should also be bled of air by the bleed screw on the water outlet located on the top of the motor.Air pockets are common.

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.

Air trapped in the system, defective water pump, blown head gasket or cracked head, cooling fan not working properly.Air trapped in the system, defective water pump, blown head gasket or cracked head, cooling fan not working properly.

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.

IF IT WAS NOT OVERHEATING BEFORE THE HOSE WAS REPLACED -- MORE THAN LIKELY YOU HAVE AIR POCKETS TRAPPED IN YOUR COOLING SYSTEM

You cooling system requires coolant in order to keep working properly, if you are wondering why your room is still hot even though you have the AC on; it is because your air conditioner is out of coolant. Just call your local heating and cooling specialist.

Just keep the reservoir filled to the right line and the cooling system should take care of the air bubbles after a while, provided that the radiator cap is sealed for both pressure AND vacuum.

Motor cooling system? The engine cooling system consits of the water pump, radiator, hoses, cooling fans, etc.Motor cooling system? The engine cooling system consits of the water pump, radiator, hoses, cooling fans, etc.

The air conditioning is a separate system from the cooling system and will not be affected by overheating, however if the overheating problem is associated with an inoperative cooling fan or a blockage in the air flow through the radiator and evaporator then the system will not cool properly.

If the cooling system is functioning properly...approximately 210 degrees fahrenheit.

Yes, you need coolant around the sensor probe to have it function properly.

User Avatar

Yes, it will help seal small leaks in the cooling system. However it can also clog the system if you do not use it properly.

Drain the water from your 1997 Chevrolet Lumina cooling system. Remove the water supply lines to your heater core. Remove the heater core retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install the new heater core.
