SOURCE: coolant/radiator flush

No, its not hard to do but keep in mind if youre just going to drain the rad and refill it there is still a lot of coolant in the engine that wont be replaced........the drain plug will be somewhere near the bottom of the radiator,most will be a flat tab that you should be able to turn without any tools....remember lefty loosey righty tighty

SOURCE: Trying to flush the radiator--cannot find the bleed valve for coolant.

The drain should be on the drivers side at the bottom of the radiator, facing the driver. It's a plastic "wing" that unscrews. There should also be a bleeder for exhausting the air from the system when you refill. The bleeder I'm familiar with is a brass screw screwed into the thermostat housing. (where the top hose attaches at the engine)

SOURCE: how to Flushing radiator coolant

Hi, first you should get a drain pan to catch the draining coolant, then purchase either premixed coolant or straight coolant and cut it in half with water. then it is usually easiest to take off the lower radiator hose from the radiator and allow all of the coolant to drain out (but make sure that the engine is cool so you do not get scalded). then put the radiator hose back on and remove the radiator cap and start pouring in the new coolant. when it gets to the top of the radiator you can start the car and let it start warming up. be sure you still have the drain pan under the car because you will most likely have some spillage. when the car warms up to operating temperature you will need to keep gradually adding coolant as the air exits the system. This may take a half an hour or so. also make sure that you fill the overflow tank to the cold mark so you do not get any air back into the system. good luck

Probably Nox too high. Can also be engine too hot. Last time cooling system serviced? Also can be carbon in the combustion chamber ignites fuel too soon. Fuel delivery system and all sensors may be a problem. Bad or corroded connections can contribute to bad behavior of the ECU.

If the unit overheated and there was no coolant flowing into the reserve tank, then there is two possible issues that must be addressed immediately. Either (1) There was not enough coolant in the system. This is because when the coolant heats up it expands and will go to the reserve tank. The fact that there was going to the tank indicates that the system is less than full, or (2) The radiator pressure cap is defective.

I would flush the cooling system, clean the reserve tank, replace the radiator cap, and refill the system and retest.

What is proper method for flushing the radiator and engine in a 1999 Pontiac Montana?


1: Drain coolant system
2: Purchase coolant flush, making sure you have the proper amount for your size of coolant system
3: Pour coolant flush into your radiator, filling the rest with water
4: On the coolant flush bottle it will tell you how long to run your vehicle
5: Once done running, let cool enough to open radiator cap, and drain system COMPLETELY by first draining out of pep **** on radiator, then taking one side of the hoses off the radiator and draining those
6: Put hoses back on and fill system with coolant. When the fluid gets to the top of the fill port on radiator, start vehicle and let run, allowing air to escape the system, and fill as necessary

I had the same problem. The Porsche Panamera has two evaporator lines . All other Porsches have one. The dealer did not know this..!! After three visits and two removals of all the rugs they discovered the second evaporator line. They unclogged that second line and it now seems the problem has been fixed. It was certainly interesting to see sudsy water on the entire floor after a trip to the car wash.

Drain and flush the cooling system...more than once if needed.
Replace the thermostat with a 180 degree...the OE stat. is 200 degree.
Clean the outside of the radiator and a/c condensor, make sure there is no debris in the cooling fins and they flow air freely.
Fill system with 50/50 mixture.
If it still attempts to overheat...check your cat convertor, it's clogged and creating too much back-pressure
Hope this helps...

You have to bleed the coolant system.There are some bleeder screws,with hex heads on them.Hold the bottom nut and gently loosen the top until water and air flow,with the system not running.When the air is not present,tighten back down gently.If the air won`t bleed out,then fill the coolant reservoir over the full mark about 3/4 way full.Make sure radiator is full,and start engine with ac off.Let it run befor it bubbles or gets too hot,turn engine off,and let it set for about 35 to 45 minutes.Check coolant reservoir to see if the coolant level has dropped.It should have dropped,if so repeat until the reservoir stops loosing fluid.The fans should come on,and go off by them selves.When this happens,then the cooling system is perfect.This I hope helps,please let me know the outcome.roniecon@gmail.com
