there should be a air valve on the engine that you can bleed the bubbles out of the cooling system.
my o6 chevy impala is lighting up on the dash that the engine is hot but the gauge is saying its cold what is wrong and how can i fix it?
It is a brass fitting on the top of the thermostat housing.
Watch how you take them off and put them back on the same way. Then you have to bleed them since there drum brakes
There is a small brass valve on the top of the thermostat housing where it attaches to the top radiator hose. Loosen it and then fill the radiator until coolant comes out of the valve and then quickly close it. This is only for an impala with the 3.8 liter engine though I believe there are two valves on the 3.4.
there should be a bleed valve towards the bottom of the rad. It will look like a " T : .
You have to use a radiator funnel kit from napa part # 77-4000 runs about $20. Chevy vans do not have a bleed screw.
How do you bleed air from radiator of a 2000 range rover?
there is a pee-cock "valve"on the bottom of your radiater. If you are trying to bleed the air from the system while filling the radiator. Where the top radiator hose connects to the engine just to the left of the intake there is a bleed valve. Take a 12mm socket and loosen this a couple of turns. When coolant starts to run out, tighten this valve (do not overtighten they break easily)
The first step that you can take to fix a radiator is to see if it needs to be bled. To bleed a radiator you will need a radiator bleed key. Unscrew the valve at the side of the radiator and when the first drop of water comes out, close the valve again. If this does not fix the radiator you will need to call in a plumber.
next to the radiator cap on top of the radiator
You shouldn't need to "bleed" the radiator in your Forester. If you top off the coolant in the radiator the next time you check the top of your radiator is empty again? You have a blown head gasket. Voice of experience here. --Ken
It doesn't have a bleed valve for the power steering.
To bleed the cooling system on a Pontiac 2.4 engine, there is a small hose near the bottom of the radiator that needs to be removed. Then remove the radiator cap and the cap on the radiator overflow tank.
no air bleed valve. all you need to do is to remove the radiator cap and let the car idle for a few minutes.
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.
Air in the system. Bleed the system. Defective thermostat, clogged radiator, defective cooling fan or fan clutch.
Air trapped in the cooling system, try replacing the radiator cap and be sure the reservoir is full to line, it should bleed itself out.
Let the motor warm up with the radiator cap off. When the thermostat opens, the level will suck down, releasing the air bubble.
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.
At the bottom of the radiator, you can see it from under the truck.
did u bleed the coolant system of air cuz that could be the reason
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.
