SOURCE: cooling system

usually the thermostat will have a little hole in it to help the air out of the system. so let it sit for a few minutes and check the water fill it again leaving it just a little bit low. then run the engine with the cap off untill you see the water circulating through the thermostat. shut it off fill the radiator and your done.

SOURCE: how do you bleed the air out of the coolant system

The generic method of bleeding air from the cooling system of any car or truck 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 , if it still overheats then you need to have the head gaskets checked with a gas analyzer for hydrocarbons present in the radiator or recovery tank

Heater blows out cold when at stand still

Sound like u have an air pocket in the cooling system. Make sure antifreeze level is correct. I also believe that model has an air bleed on engine to remove any air trapped in engine cooling system so might want to try to bleed the system as well. Hope this help

2006 Pontiac Grand Prix gxp overheats after only driving 10 to 15 miles the ac off for engine protection comes on then coolant hot mil comes on. What is the best suggestion for this fix?

First check to see if fan motors are working. If they are then sounds like new thermostat And after you put in new thermostat don't forget to bleed the air out of system with engine running. Bleed screws should be on manifold on front of engine. If you don't bleed the air out then it will overheat. I had same problem but the only thing I forgot to do after changing coolant and thermostat was bleeding the air. Good luck

How to bleed air from coolant system on 1996 Impala

There is a Special Tool to VACUUM the system and then the Vacuum will suckk the coolant back in and there will be no Air.

Another way is to jack up the side of the car with the Radiator Cap is and allow gravity to do the work.

If there is no Bleeder Screw on the Thermostat housing, there is not much more than you can do.

06 impala bleed air out of cooling system

Put heater on high heat to circulate water in those hoses and heater core. Then start the car after removing the radiator cap and filling with coolant to the top. When the radiator opens you will see the liquid level go down- add more coolant and keep adding till it stays full. Meanwhile fill the overflow to recommended level. When radiator level goes down no more, put radiator cap back on and let engine and coolant cool. If any more water is needed the vacuum created by the shrinking water will draw it in from the overflow.

I replaced the pump on my 2006 impala, and it still whines. we found that there is still ari in the system. when we bleed the air out it stops whinning. but after 10min or less of driving it starts to...

in bleeding the system most say to turn the wheels all the way to the left then to the right. doing this several times until all air is out. if this is what you are doing and it still has air in the system, then it is sucking air somewhere. check all your hose connections.

My 2001 impala is running hot

Most likely it is a 3.4 liter engine. If it is, they are prone to intake manifold leaks. If you know someone with a coolant system pressure tester, pressurize the system to the psi on the radiator cap and see if it will hold the pressure. If it won't, look for the area where the pressure is bleeding off coolant. That is where the problem is. If it holds the pressure,make sure you have bled the system properly. If you stand in front of the car, there is a bleeder on the passenger side and one on the driver's side which look like 1/8 pipe thread. Both of these need to be purged of ANY air.

No heat when engine temp is normal.

Had the same problem with my 2006 Impala with the 3.5 engine - there is an air pocket in the heater core. With the engine cold, remove the upper heater hose (marked with blue tape in the picture) and add water to the hose until coolant comes out of the metal cross-over tube. Fix takes 5 minutes…all you need is a pair of pliers and a funnel.f7b2b4c.jpg

My 2006 chev Impala (V6) blows cold air out of the heater until I raise the rpm to like 1500 (or so). Engine coolant overflow is empty but when I pull the rad cap off the rad is full. Could this be an air...

These cars easily get air trapped in the coolant system. Park the car somewhere so that you car get the right front of the car as high as possible. Take the coolant filler cap off and start the car. You should see air bubbles appear as it bleeds it self. Once coolant starts to overflow put the cap back on. It should be fine now but if not repeat again.
