there are two separate fittings (they look like grease fittings) located in the cooling system near the top of the engine (shouldn't have to dig to find). loosen both fittings and start vehicle. While the vehicle is running watch fittings, when you get a steady stream of coolant from both fittings tighten them down and your good to go. If after doing this the problem occurs again you've got a leak and need to take it to a garage immediately.

AnswerI can't find any grease fitting-like bleeder valves on the top of this boxer engine. Can you give me more description and location info? What kind of a wrench does it take to loosen them? Answereven easier...passenger side/top of the radiator is a Philips head looking plug...remove the plug and fill the radiator/engine via this..It's a little hole, but the purpose is to slowly add antifreeze so that the system burps the entire time...takes about 10 minutes to fill it. Works Excellent.

On my 98 2.5Liter Outback, the radiator drain plug is at the lower left (passenger side) rear side of the radiator. Pull the small plastic coweling loose that is just below it to unscrew the plug. YFC I have a problem: How do you purge the air trapped in this 2.5 Liter engine after refilling a drained radiator? I have a problem: How do you purge the air trapped in this 2.5 Liter engine after refilling a drained radiator? im having to deal with this right now. according to the manual remove the radiator cap and reservoir cap. start the car and slowly fill the reservoir as needed the air will vent from the radiator once the water no longer needs to be filled replace the caps **you must pour slowly or you will prevent the air from escaping

Umm, you pour it into the radiator. You know, the place that you drained it from.....

No, if there are valves so the radiator can be isolated only the radiator needs to be drained along with the location it is being moved to. If no valves are present you would only need to drain to a point below the radiator in question, so it is empty but the rest of the system can stay full. When refilling, unless it is steam the whole system will need to be bled of air.

The cooling system on these vehicles is drained by detaching the lower radiator hose from the radiator. The radiator doesn't have a drain plug.

One flushes a radiator by draining the radiator, rincing the radiator, and then by adding a new coolant. One should remember that the drained coolant is toxic.

Unless I have drained the block and radiator, I have filled the radiator from my expansion tank in every vehicle I ever had. If you have drained your radiator and it is cold, take off the cap and fill it that way. If you have drained the engine block and have not change your thermostat, you will need to keep filling your expansion tank until everything is filled back up. I recommend changing your thermostat.

Follow the upper radiator hose from the radiator to the top of the engine. There will be 2 bolts once you have drained the radiator you can remove these bolts that hold the waterneck housing down lift it up, and there will be the thermostat.

Before changing the radiator on a 2001 Pontiac Montana the coolant must first be drained. After the drain remove the radiator mounts, fans, and hoses. Pull the radiator upwards.

A radiator is held on the mounting brackets. Before removing the radiator on a Toyota Starlet it will need its coolant drained. Remove all the mounting bolts and disconnect the hoses to pull the radiator off.

To remove a radiator from a 1997 Toyota Tacoma the truck needs to be cooled down. The coolant needs to be drained, and loosen the radiator mounts. When everything is loosen remove the radiator.

Look closely at the radiator. Check the bottom corner of the radiator that is opposite of the lower radiator hose. If there is no drain plug or petcock, then the coolant will need to be drained by removing the lower radiator hose.

The radiator drain plug on a 2004 Chevy Venture is located at the bottom, left side of the radiator. It allows for the coolant to be quickly drained during maintenance.

i just drained mine and it was at the bottom of the rad

The radiator on a 1999 Mercury Cougar is flushed by draining the radiator, filling it with water, and adding a commercially available radiator flush. The engine is allowed to circulate for 10 minutes, drained, flushed with fresh water, and refilled with coolant.

To flush a radiator on an Acura RL you will need to make sure the care is level. Remove the radiator cap from the radiator under the hood. Place a bucket under the radiator and remove the radiator plug. This is a white plug located on the bottom of the radiator which may be hidden by the splash guards at the front of the vehicle. After the radiator fluid has been drained replace the white radiator plug. Refill the radiator with coolant and replace the radiator cap.

Remove the drain plug from the bottom of the radiator. Allow the coolant to completely drained out. Replace the drain plug to its original position. Fill the radiator with new coolant.

In systems that do not have a radiator cap, the coolant is drained by the radiator drain plug. It is filled by adding coolant to the system through the overflow bottle.

The first step in how one can replace a thermostat in a 2001 Cadillac DeVille is to remove the housing which surrounds the old thermostat. The radiator hose will need to be removed and drained and then the thermostat can be removed. Remove the old thermostat gasket and then insert the new thermostat as well as the new gasket. Attach the radiator hose and place the drained fluid back into the radiator filler cap.

If the block and radiator are drained, it will take approximately 4 gallons to refill.
