A combination of having the rad cap off while the motor is running... and squeezing the hoses to force out air. do that at idle in your driveway, keep adding antifreeze till it appears you have all the air out.... reinstall the rad cap and fill the overflow tank to the recommended height in the tank. be careful of moving parts and you hands etc while you are working on it when the motor is running.

Hi there... with the radiator cap off, start the van and let it warm up. Once the thermostat opens you will see the coolant start to circulate in the rad. let it run for 10 - 15 minutes and add more coolant as needed. you will know when there is no more air because the coolant leve, won't go down anymore. Top up the rad and put the cap back on. make sure the overflow resevoir has coolant in it to the full mark and youre done. Hope this helps you out

The heat don't work in my 91 plymouth acclaim


I could be that there is no antifreeze in the radiator, that the thermostat is bad, or that the heater core is bad. try checking the antifreeze first. sometimes the thermostats in those cars get stuck open due to corrosion on the thermostat housing.

My 99 Plymouth grand voyager has a recurring brakes problem.What could be wrong?


Fixed--- I don't think so !!

3 Mechanics-that is sad

How about the power brake booster?
Was that checked & the vacuum check valve okey?

You wouldn't be happy if that solved the issue & you
got the valve off the wall on a trip thru the parts store
& installed yourself

What about ABS Issues?

What happens if you command the valves open
with a scan tool,bleed system & test drive with scanner
and valves still open or disconnect the motor to it & drive
around a few days.

I remember a load leveler valve under the back on
the drivers side on some caravans?

The fluid has to go somewhere,if not back into the reservoir,
then the abs unit maybe.

Better check the not leaking part yourself, unless you don't
loose any fluid

You bleed them there okey for 3 days,why,that is the key,
then what?

1994 plymouth voyager heating problems. Just


After the car warms up feel the heater hoses that go into the fire wall from the motor both should be warm if only one is warm and the other is cool the heat valve that opens the flow of antifreeze to the heater core is not functioning locate the valve (either under dash in passenger compartment or in the egine compartment) it has a vacuum line going to it and it should have vacuum when the heat is on if not replace the vacuum line or valve itself. Back flush heater core and also be sure the level of antifreeze is up to the top low antifreeze will cause no heat to occur.

My 1996 grand voyager is only blowing cold air,thermostast ok


Check operation of heater coolant control valve, and it's associated remote control mechanism.
Check that both inlet and return heater hose is equally warm, as this indicates coolant flow through the heater core.
If no coolant flow:-
Check cooling system is correctly filled, taking care to bleed off any air locks from the system as necessary (with heater coolant valve open);
Check heater core is not blocked.

Make sure it is full of fluid, go to the farthest wheel have someone pump the brakes up as much as possible have the person continue to push on the pedal as you open the the bleed valve located on the back of the brake drum continue this proscees pumping and bleeding until you get a continuous flow of fluid coming out, move to the opposite side and do it again go to the next farthest and continue until you have bled all wheel cylinders and have all the air out be sure you keep the reservoir full during this procedure
