Air enters the system when you drain the cooling system or it is low of coolant. The cooling system has lots of nooks and crannies that trap air, making it difficult to fill the system with coolant. The fill cap and neck are supposed to be at the high point of the system to help air bleed out, but often they aren't. And even if they are, you need all the natural help you can get. So jack up the front of the car, which gets the coolant fill neck as high as possible. Check for air bleeds on the engine. Sometimes you'll see an obvious air bleed, such as a boltlike item threaded into a hose. If there's an air bleed, open it. If there are several, open them all. If you have access to a factory service manual or PM CD-ROM for your car, check it for a coolant fill procedure. Look in your owners manual for bleeder valve locations. Pour in the required amount of antifreeze slowly until you see coolant oozing out of the open air bleeds. Then close the bleeds and top off the system with the remaining antifreeze and then plain water. If the system has a heater coolant valve, close it by moving the temperature control lever or knob to cold. With the engine running at fast idle and warmed up, have a helper move the lever or knob to hot while you listen at the coolant valve. If after the first rush of coolant you hear a continuous gurgling noise, there's still air in the coolant, and you should be prepared to watch the coolant level in the reservoir over the next few weeks. You must remove air from the system as any trapped air will create a hot spot.
You may have air pockets trap in the cooling system.
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.
No, but they can cause it to overheat
Air in the system. Bleed the cooling system and remove any trapped air pockets.
by either using a pressurized tool for filling it or along the top of the intake there is a coolant line that has a *bleed screw* that can be opened while filling it till coolant comes out of the hole then close it up
Should bleed all vehicles after the system has work done to it to get rid of air pockets
You have air in your system. there are release valves that let the air out take it a mechanic
Hi, this is a common problem with subaru's - you need to get the cooling system pressure bled - i.e there is air in your cooling system.
IF IT WAS NOT OVERHEATING BEFORE THE HOSE WAS REPLACED -- MORE THAN LIKELY YOU HAVE AIR POCKETS TRAPPED IN YOUR COOLING SYSTEM
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.
It probley has an AIR pocket in the cooling system. Bleed the air out of the system and make sure it is full of fluid.

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.
It is only necessary for your computer to have a liquid cooling system when a traditional fan cooling system is inadequate to cool the interior. This may be the case when overclocking components in a system, which causes more heat to be generated. Care should be taken, to avoid condensation from being generated, which may cause shorts.
The cooling system.
An average life of a system cooling device is around 10 to 15 years. This is with cont use of the system cooling device, if you do not use the cooling system then you can prolong your cooling system for a couple more years.
Overheating or air trapped in cooling system.
If there is no cooling system, the engin will overheat.
When the engine is cold, remove the radiator cap, top off with a 50/50 mix, and start the engine. This will allow air to escape from the radiator. It may also have bleeder valves located high on the cooling system. The location will be listed in your owner's manual.
One of the major causes of a car overheating is a leak in the cooling system. Other causes are a clogged radiator, a bad thermostat, a broken or split hose, a worn out water pump, and a faulty cooling fan.
You need to check your heater core, and blower this are the most probable causes When you flush the coolant on this car, you are supposed to remove the thermostat first-another fine GM concept. IF the there is no volume blowing through the vents, it is a problem with the blower system, not the cooling system. IF it isn't hot but blows okay, it is the cooling system. There is a bleed procedure in this motor as well to remove air pockets. I'd try a t-stat first.
