THE BEST WAY IS TO SLIGHTLY ELEVATE THE FRONT OF THE VEHICLE, JACK IT UP, THE REASON FOR JACKING IT UP IS TO ENSURE ALL THE BUBBLE FLOAT TO THE HIGHEST POINT AND GET OUT OF THE SYSTEM. NOW MAKE SURE YOUR HEATING IS SET TO "FULL HEAT" AND TURNED ON "LOW" FAN SPEED. THEN OPEN THE BLEEDER VALVE LOCATED ON TOP OF THE THERMOSTAT HOUSING, IF YOUR COOLING SYSTEM IS EMPTY NOW IS THE TIME TO FIL IT UP, U SHOULD HEAR A GENTILE HISSING SOUND AS U POUR IT IN, THIS IS AN INDICATION OF THE AIR ESCAPING. WHEN U SEE THE COOLANT COME OUT THE BLEEDER U KNOW THE AIR IS GONE. TO MAKE SURE U GOT ALL OF IT OUT TURN THE ENGINE ON, WITH THE RESERVOIR CAP FOR THE COOLANT BOTTLE OFF, OPEN THE VALVE ON THE THERMOSTAT HOUSING AGAIN, KEEP ENGINE AT IDLE DO NOT REV IT, ADDING FLUID UNTIL THERE IS A STEADY STREAM DRIPPING OUT. LET ENGINE REV UNTIL COOLING FAN GOES ON WHEN IT GOES ON U WILL PROABALY HAVE TO ADD FLUID TO THE RESERVOIR DO NOT LET IT GO LOW KEEP IT CONSTANT. ONCE THE FAN HAS STOPPED PUT CAP BACK ON RESERVOIR AND YOU'RE DONE.

To bleed the coolant in a 1995 Dodge intrepid locate the drain plug on the underside of the radiator, un plug it and pour new coolant in the system. Close the plug and while the engine is running find the coolant pressure valve and loosen it to relieve pressure. When bubbles stop forming there is no longer air in the system.

There is a bleed screw on the thermostat housing. Remove the screw with the engine loose. Ounc you have pure coolant and no air you can close off the bleed screw.

As you did not include engine or Year info I will give a general answer. Look on the top of the engine, most GM products with a bleed system have a small brass pipe thread plug in the top of a black or aluminum casting. This is the bleed point, loosen the plug or valve and add coolant to the system until it flows from the bleed, tighten up the bleed. Done. Repeat if needed.

Is the question how to bleed a Buick 3800 cooling system? I would say open that little petcock by the themostat housing and release all the air as you fill the system with coolant. When coolant comes out instead of air all the air is out.

open bleeder on engine by the upper hose outlet.

If it has bleeder valves then use them to bleed the system, if not, jack up the front of the vehicle as high as possible. Remove the radiator cap and start the engine. Add coolant to keep the system full. This will allow air to escape.

There is only valve to bleed coolant and not air. If you want to bleed air of the system, you need to park the car on incline of 10-15 degrees (front ahead) and run the engine for some time. It will work out all air.

It is not necessary to bleed the coolant system. If you mean "drain" the system, there is usually a plastic plug on the radiator or, you can pull the lower radiator hose off.

To bleed the coolant system on a 1998 VW Beetle, remove the top from the overflow tank. Run the car for 10 to 15 minutes to force any air out of the system, then check the coolant level. Add coolant as needed.

Cold engine. Remove the radiator cap, top it off, start the engine, add coolant as necessary until all air bubbles stop escaping.

It's possible that you still have air in the cooling system..let engine cool down completely and see if the coolant gets symphned back to the coolant recovery bottle. If so re-fill bottle and open coolant air-bleed valve on top of thermostat start engine top off bottle...

User Avatar

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.

User Avatar

low engine coolant level, your heater core is at the very top, so if its not full to the very top it wont work. add coolant and bleed system.

To bleed the cooling system on a 1996 Olds Cutlass, locate the bleed valve, which is on the front of the engine above the water pump. After making sure the cooling system is not under pressure, open the valve by turning it counterclockwise. Fill the radiator with coolant until no air comes out the bleed valve, and a stream of coolant begins to flow from there instead. Tighten the valve and close the system to finish the job.

on side of thermostat housing there is a bleed screw with engine running slowly open screw you will hear air coming out do not do this when HOT, with cool engine only , when fluid does start to come out tighten screw back in

Start by taking the top off of the coolant overflow reservoir. To bleed the system, run the 1998 VW 2.0 Beetle about 10 minutes, then check the coolant level. Add coolant if needed, then replace the reservoir top.

If there are no Schroeder valve to bleed the system with then do this. Jack the front of the vehicle as high as possible. Remove the radiator cap, (Cold engine), start the engine and allow it to run until all air bubbles have stopped escaping from the radiator. Keep the system topped off with coolant.If there are no Schroeder valve to bleed the system with then do this. Jack the front of the vehicle as high as possible.

either radiator or pressurized reserve tank. or a coolant hose high on engine will bleed the system for you too.
