SOURCE: cant find the air bleeder screws for the cooling

Your best bet is to start the car and let the water pump bleed it out for you. If you have a radiator cap, keep it off so you can check the coolant level. As the motor warms up, the level will drop. Add coolant until the level stops dropping or until the coolant starts to overflow. As long as the engine stays cool, there is no danger in damaging the motor.

The coolant will not come gushing out and get all over you, so don't worry.

Why does the heater in my 2005 chevy monte carlo only blow cold air?

Try this...I found it on the web.

The cooling system in these cars must be bled. That is all the air removed after the cooling system is serviced. Set the heating controls to full heat & open the bleeder screw, which is probably located at or near the thermostat housing until coolant flows smoothly out. Leave the screw open for an additional 10 seconds & you should be all set

My car keeps over heating. i just changed my thermostat, timming belt and water pump? what should i do?

if you are not getting any heat when it is at normal operating temperature , you may have air trapped in the cooling system . some vehicles have a bleeder screw in which you would remove the screw and add coolant without the engine running until there is no air bubbling out of the hole that you removed the screw from .then put the screw back in and let it run keeping an eye on your temp gauge . If you have no bleeder screw , then you have to either jack the front of the car up high or park on a VERY steep incline and let the car idle making sure the coolant stays full until the trapped air is purged from the cooling system . In most cases when air is gone out , you will get good heat from your heater and should run at normal temp. you can also call mazda first to see if it has a bleeder screw and exactly where it is located .

Cooling system is air bound, how can I bleed it out?

Look for bleeder valves somewhere on the top of the cooling system. If you see any use them to remove trapped air. Start the engine and slowly turn the screw to remove trapped air. If there are no bleeder screws then remove the radiator cap from a cool engine. Make sure the radiator is full. Start the engine and watch for escaping air bubbles. Keep the radiator full at all times. When the engine reaches close to full operating temperature and you see no more air bubbles escaping put the cap back on. You may have to do this one more time if you experience any more trapped air in the system. Just make sure to look closely for bleeder valves. They will look like tire valves with a cap.

I can't find the thermostat location on a 2005 chevy uplander? I need to replace it and have the part but can't find it in the engine bay. Took both coolant hoses off no luck.

the thermostat is under the throttle body
remove the air box and the throttle body
remove the top thermostat bolt
the bottom thermostat bolt remove 95% the hole is slotted
replace thr t-stat and reassemble
if you have anLX9 engine there will be air bleed scews
if you have an LZ9 it will not have air bleed screws
ok if you have bleed screws open both then fill the rad wait till a STEADY STREAM of coolant is coming out then close bleed screws
start the vehicle put your heater on HOT and VENT AND BLOWER ON HIGH
run vehicle till u get HOT NOT WARM AIR coming out of vents this will insure you have no air in the cooling system

now if you have no bleeders
then fill the rad then install the rad cap
start the engine run engine 2,000-2,500 RPM till the temp. gauge reads about normal about half way
then let the vehicle idle for 3 min
then shut the vehicle off and cool down so the rad cap can be removed
top up coolant
also make sure there is good hot air coming out of the heater if not repeat procedure there is still air in the cooling system
hope you found this helpfull

How do I bleed the air out of the coolant on a 2000 Monte Carlo LS 3.4L?

Look for a bleeder screw at the highest point of the coolant system, it is usually located on the thermostat housing. Once located open screw with engine off and cool, and pour coolant into the coolant resevoir/ radiator until steady stream of coolant starts to come out of bleeder screw.

Find and replace thermostat 2003 corolla--thank you !

Follow the lower radiator hose to the engine. Most Toyota's along this year model have the thermostat located in the engine, where the lower radiator hose connects to the engine. Changing the thermostat is pretty straight forward. Refilling is a little trickier. Search the top of the engine and find the bleeder screw for the cooling system. Open this bleeder screw, usually a 10mm, or 12mm socket will fit, and fill the cooling system with the recommended coolant. Pay attention to your mixing ratio as well.
