SOURCE: can you bleed the water cooling system on 1999 mercury cougar

This is extremely important on some cars, for instance my BMW. 1. Have the car parked in a slight uphill slope. Make sure there is enough coolant in the expansion jar.
2. Start the engine and wait for the thermostat to open (upper radiator hose becomes warm).
3. Open up the radiator bleeding nipples slightly with a large screwdriver (bleeding nipples normally made of plastic with a '+* for a screwdriver to fit, at the highest points in the cooling circuit).
4. Allow air bubbles to fizzle out until you get a steady stream of coolant leaking out, use rags to capture leaking coolant.
5. Then close the bleeding nipples, switch off the engine and wait a few minutes for pressure to come down.
6. Open up the cap on the expansion vessel carefully and fill just below the "hot" marking.
7. Check levels again after a few miles and refill further if needed.

Done.

SOURCE: Help with cooling system!!

OK, firstly The basis that a cars cooling system runs on is very simple. The system is a pressurized cycle that moves the coolant around, along with the heat, and is slowest in the radiator to allow heat to escape. If the system is not pressurized then the cycle will not work properly and coolant will not move.
If there is air in the system this can create what would seem like a blockage. 'bleeding the system is not the answer especially if you are using the drain on the radiator. That drain is only for draining fluid not air.
If air blockage is the problem then what you do is open the system at the highest point possible. this is usually a hose at the top of the radiator or something, whatever is easiest. Then find the other hose attached to the radiator, lower, higher makes no difference. then simply squeeze the second hose. this will 'burp' the air out do this for a while until all that happens is fliud is pushed out repeatedly.
then reattach the top hose and top up the radiator, and go for a drive.
If this doesn't fix the problem then air is not the problem.

SOURCE: Do I need to bleed the system after replacing the radiator cap?

Definitely recommended - Process is fairly simple, let the vehicle idle and/or reach normal operating temperature - turn the"bleed screw" slightly open and note as the air bubbles escapes from the screw. Also make sure the radiator is topped up with sufficient coolant. Funny enough, the mechanic should have taken care of this process after replacing the thermostat....

SOURCE: How often should I bleed air from the cooling system?

check your oil and make sure you dont ahve a blown head gasket and that your thermostat is good (throw it in boiling water and see if it opens), and if you are losing water/coolant with no drips or puddles than it may be leaking in a cylinder which means bad head gasket as well

SOURCE: A3 2.0 TDI changed radiator, how do you bleed the system

If you have no radiator cap that can be removed, you will probably have to do repeated cycles of engine temperature and just add coolant to the overflow until the engine stops draining it. This isn't like a hydraulic (brake) system so the chance of leaving bubbles behind is far less.
With a radiator cap, it's pretty simple; run the engine until the coolant is visibly circulating and add coolant as the level drops.

How do i change my radiator


This is a timely but easy job. Simply drain the radiator. Disconnect the two radiator hoses. If automatic, disconnect the transmision lines going into the radiator. then remove the two bolts holding the fan in place and the plug that controls the fan. Then remove the two bolts holding the radiator in place. Your radiator will then slide right out the top.
