Some times there are small bleeder screws on the intake side of the radiator hose usualy right buy the termostat housing an on the return side hose the screw size 5/16 or 7mm loosen them only a few turns slow until you see a little antifreese come out mixed with air, when the air stops tighten becarefull not to losen to much the screws will blow and hot antifreeze could burn you.
If there are not bleeder screws you can try when engine is cool make sure the radiator is full and start the car with radiator cap off and let it run
long enough for the thermastat to open it will bleed as it runs just becarefull not get burnt! Fill and return rad cap and it you bleed.Sometimes you may have to acelerate a little the move the antifreeze enough to get the air out.

I have a 1995 monte carlo ls with a v6 in it and it over heats. I have changed the thermostat, watched both fans come on and off changed the radeator cap. if I pull the cap off after it has set overnight...

There should be a little bleeder usually located on top of engine that you open when the car is running to bleed the air out. If this hasn't been done you may have air pockets trapped. Also check the fins of your radiator and AC condensor to make sure they are not damaged or full of dirt or debris that will restrict air flow. The inside of your radiator may be getting plugged up. You may have a head gasket leak. If a head gasket leaks exhaust into your cooling system it can cause overheating. If you can run your car with the radiator cap off watch for bubbling. If you notice a bunch of bubbles exhaust may be getting into your cooling system.

No heat in cab.

You did not BLEED the radiator and it's over heating.

Take off radiator cap when engine is COLD

Start engine

Let it idle until it's HOT

As it heats up you will notice air bubbles coming out of the radiator filler neck.

Let car run until you don't see any more bubbles

Fill radiator coolant to keep it topped up to the hot mark.

Put radiator cap back on once you hear the fans kick on.


You should now have tons of heat

Water not circulating,we put on radeator cap water pump ,intake gasket,flush heater core,engine radeator,reservoir

check to make sure the bottom radiator hose is not collapsing. sticking together. once it sucks together its like the thermostat being closed. the faster the engine turns the it sucks together. also make sure its not the clutch on the fan gone bad. if it has one. to ckeck ,look under hood at fan ,have someone to rev engine. make sure the fan turns as fast as the engine turns . if it doesn't it's a bad fan clutch. goe put a new one on.
