How do I bleed the coolant on a 94 Buick lesabre?


All cars are much the same as you just need to get all the air out. Make sure you have the heater turned on full and the coolant tank topped up. Leave the top off the coolant tank. Start the engine and leave it idling. Keep an eye on the temperature gauge and the coolant level. The temperature will increase and then drop slightly as the thermostat opens. Top up the coolant as necessary until the temperature is normal and the coolant no longer drops. Put the coolant cap on and take the car for a short drive, say 15 minutes while leaving the heater on full. Top up as necessary once you get home. That should do it, but it is worth checking after each drive for the next day or two. Some cars can be very hard to clear all air and will have one or more plugs on the top of the engine or radiator. If you have those, you can slightly unscrew them to let any air out, but it is rare to find this on a modern car.

Lincoln continental steam coming out of hood


The engine coolant has evidently boiled. Allow it to cool and check the coolant level. Overall possible causes are

- low coolant level
- loose radiator cap
- split radiator hose
- cracked radiator tank
- failed thermostat stuck closed
- failed fan drive
- failed water pump or drive belt
- blown head gasket

so if the coolant level is OK or a top up does not fix it, you may require a mechanic.

Hi shawn, further to my previous post can you confirm that the vehicle has had a different engine installed from the original and if so what are they ? here is a diagram of the cooling syatem i think your talking about but the bigger the engine ie V6 or even a diesel, there may well be more coolant pipes,for heat exchangers etc,than are now required for a petrol engine hope this diagram helps keep me posted and include some photo's if you can

Cooling system


Raise the car front end as high as possible with a floor jack, fill the coolant tank to the top, run the engine until it reaches just short of overheating, shut it down and run water over the radiator, this will burp the air out. Repeat as needed. Don't let the coolant recovery tank run dry during procedure.

My 97 cadillac deville over heated 1 time on the highway. after filling it with coolant i dont have any problems. why did it overheat that 1 time


if you are using coolant that is mixed 50-50 with water, the water will evaporate. If you are having issues and using straight antifreeze without a water mixture, you may have a small coolant leak or a small leak in the head gasket.

COOLANT-ADDING ADDITIONAL
Do not remove radiator cap to add coolant to system. When adding coolant to maintain correct level, do so at coolant reserve/overflow tank. Use a 50/50 mixture of ethylene glycol antifreeze containing Alugard 340-2 y and low mineral content water.
Remove radiator cap only for testing or when refilling system after service. Removing cap unnecessarily can cause loss of coolant and allow air to enter system, which produces corrosion.

COOLANT LEVEL CHECK
The cooling system is closed and designed to maintain coolant level to top of radiator.
WARNING: DO NOT OPEN RADIATOR DRAINCOCK WITH ENGINE RUNNING OR WHILE ENGINE IS HOT AND COOLING SYSTEM IS UNDER PRESSURE.
Remove radiator cap. The coolant level should be to top of radiator. If not, and if coolant level in coolant recovery bottle is at ADD mark, check for:
  • An air leak in coolant reserve/overflow tank or its hose
  • An air leak in radiator filler neck
  • Leak in pressure cap seal to radiator filler neck

How to remove rediator air lock on a Golf 4 TDi.


Remove the radiator cap. Raise the front of the vehicle with a jack so that the radiator is higher than the engine. Start the engine and let it run. Watch the coolant level in the radiator. When the thermostat opens an the coolant starts to flow, the coolant level should drop rapidly. Add antifreeze til the radiator is full. Keep repeating this process until the coolant level no longer drops. If the thermostat closes while you are doing this, the coolant will probably spill over the top of the radiator. That's ok. Just wait for the thermostat to open again and refill the lost coolant. Put the radiator cap back on while the engine is running. Make sure there is coolant in the overflow reservoir. Lower the vehicle and that should take care of the airlock.

Location of Thermostat


All Saturns 91-99 have a 1.9L 4 cylinder engine block, only the heads are different. Look at the radiator, it has two large black rubberlike hoses, one top and one bottom, which connect to the engine.
Where the top hose connects, it actually connects to the thermostat housing. Thus you have to drain the coolant, and remove the top hose from the housing end, then the housing from the engine and you will have the thermostat. Make sure you clean all surfaces well before you put the new thermostat in and reattach the housing. Might also be a good time to put new radiator hoses on, top and bottom.
