Year, make., model, engine size?

For most vehicles it is pretty simple. Remove the radiator cap on a cold engine. Top off coolant in the radiator as necessary. Start the engine and allow to idle until the engine is up to full operating temperature and the fans come on. Keep on eye on the coolant during this time and continue to add as necessary. As soon as the fan comes on install the cap and you should be good to go.

Some specific models have specific instruction.

Changed a radiator today, drained system. Hot water will not heat now. Heating and radiators are working ok


Helen, if it is the radiator in your car that was changed, you may have air in the cooling system that needs bled out. May also be a failing water pump, thermostat,etc.

02 ford explorer 4.0 overheating and suddenly blowing cold air, then hot again while engine runs cool but not long


Most likely you have air trapped in your engine, particularly in the heater loop. You need to properly bleed the air out of your radiator cooling system. The hot and cold blasts of air coming from first hot water followed by air.
Read up on how to bleed air out of your radiator system. Some systems are very difficult to bleed.
If after doing a good bleed of the radiator system the problem returns, you may have a bad head gasket or other leak in your cooling system which is injecting air into the cooling system (radiator/water cooling system).

My 2002 buick century overheats and has no heat


Possible trapped in system. Bleed system, should have two small screw bleeders, one in front of left valve cover on pipe behind water pump and the other on coolant pipe outlet as you follow upper rad. hose towards engine. Engine cool, remove rad cap, open both bleed screws and fill rad until coolant flows free out both bleed ports. close both bleed screws, rad cap off, start engine and let idle until upper hose is hot to touch , shut off, let it cool down for 20 minutes, top up rad and install cap. restart car ,drive and check.

2003 pontiac grand am bleeding the cooling system


Look on your exhaust manifold. What you are looking for is a little bleed screw. Mine is painted blue. Yours maybe a different color. When you find it start your engine and let it idle for 3-5 minutes. Make sure your heat is turned on full. With the enging running turn bleed screw counterclockwise till water starts shooting out. Let the water continue to shoot out until you get a steady stream. Once you get that steady stream then tighten. Your system is now bled.

Need to bleed air our of cooling system on 1992 Lexus SC400


The generic method of bleeding air from the cooling system is to use a floor jack and raise the front of the car as high as poss, then fill the coolant recovery tank full and run the engine until it just starts to overheat, high end of normal zone on gauge, then shut the engine down and run cold water over the radiator core, this will self bleed the system and the coolant will be pulled from the recovery tank, repeat as necessary, never let the recovery tank run dry or more air will be pulled into the cooling systeml

Top hose hot and bottom hose cool...replaced radiator,condenser auxillary fan unit/resistor, replaced harness (spliced) from aux fan unit to temp sensor in the radiator...fan wont work and I dont think...


sounds like your water pump is air bound ( there is a air bubble in your cooling system,or your water pump isn't turning.Bleed the cooling system by jacking car upso the antifreeze fill area is the highest point and run the engineat 1500 rpms add water if it goes down that tell you that the water pump is pulling.Also see if you have a air bleed on the cooling system.Keep the rpms up until you can't add anymore water then put cap back on before returning the engine to normal idle speed.
