on the side of the thermostat housing there is a small screw with the motor is running make sure the heater is on loosen the screw let the water run until you see a steady flow then tighten back up.

I disagree with the previous poster. The cooling system is bled by loosening the screw on the metal pipe just behind the water pump housing. The pipe goes upward off the housing and has a bleed screw on the end of it.

To Bleed the cooling system, turn the heater to full hot and open the screw and add coolant to the resevior until you get a bubble free flow of coolant from the bleed screw. At this point the system is bled and just tighten the screw.

Any time you flush out the cooling system you need to bleed the cooling system.

If the cooling system is in good working order the system will bleed the air out itself. If the system has a leak anywhere no matter how small the system will never bleed the air out.

there should be a air valve on the engine that you can bleed the bubbles out of 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.

when it is cold take the cap off the radiator and start the car and let the air out The above answer is incorrect. The cooling system on the Grand Am requires you to bleed the system. There is a bleeder screw on the top of the motor, just follow the black tubing and you'll see it.

There is a high probability that the system needs to be bled. As in bleed the air from the system. Just filling the system is not enough. You need to warm the engine to get the water flowing, then switch off and bleed the air out. Yes there is always some air and it gravitates to the highest point of the cooling system. I hope this helps

Engine cooling system is not a closed system you can't remove the air.

There is a schrader valve on the fuel rail that will allow you to blled the system. This is not normally necessary as the air will be pushed out by the fuel pressure.

The cooling system bleed valve, on your General Motors 5.7 liter engine, is located on the bottom of the radiator. The bleed valve should be in the middle of the radiator bottom.

drain the whole cooling system and refill it. You will never know if you don't give details of your car!

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.

These engines take care of themselves... They have a air bleed tube coming out of the water outlet, which is located under the power steering pump on the drivers side. This tube runs back over to the fill tank. This system does not have a cap on the radiator, just on the fill tank. This is correct on the 97 Buick Skylark 2.4 Quad 4 which I have.
