What could cause my 2000 Nissan exterra to overheat while idling? I have replaced the clutch fan, censor and thermostat


Don't know where you're located, Tamela, but warmer climates & idling, don't go very well together. if you're idling for long time, maybe shut the engine off. Or maybe a little more rev on the idle speed. good luck!

I'm bleeding my radiators in my house and air is coming out of them no water some are hot 2 aren't I've had them open for ten minutes how long do I keep them open.or do I close them and bleed them again...


First, bleed only one radiator at a time. Remember the system is a closed loop so you will eventually get all the air out and hit water. If this is the first time the furnace has been used this year you could have quite a lot of air built up and it can take a long time to fully bleed the system. If you open two radiators and one is much colder than the other you can actually suck air into the circuit so open only one at a time. The air can also move around as you bleed the system so you may need to bleed it more than once.

Ok, now what are the leading causes of an overheating audi 80? this ones just hada new radiator installed and has been overheating eversince, im assuming an air lock?? do they have a coolant bleeding...


From memory the Audi 80 has a small radiator nestled in behind the front left headlight. This position is fine in colder European areas, but in a warmer climate it tends to cause some grief.

Thick white smoke is most likely Blown head gasket! the seal between the cylinder block and the cylinder head. Coolant in the cylinders.
Does the white smoke have a sweetness to it? That will be the glycol in the antifreeze. Does it run rough? Is there smoke in the radiator, or fluid pushing out of radiator? Open radiator only when COLD engine or slowly with thick gloves and towel over cap. Allow pressure to bleed off before removing cap completely. White foam in or around the oil filler cap.? Cylinder pressure test will reveal where it is. As will a super clean spark plug. Sorry.

Hi,
The bleeding nipple would be near the water pump rad hose inlet and beneath the thermostat valve cover.
Bleeding is easy, just fill up the radiator and the reservoir w/ coolant run the engine for 5 min and open the bleeding nipples! or Just fill up the radiator before u start the engine, early morning, run the engine for 5 min. untill the thermostat valve opens, open the radiator cap( use a wet rag ), carefull not to open it instantly! Fill up the radiator while the engine runs, add coolant while u slightly reving up the engine.
Do these and open the heater to maximum, air might be inside the core too!
Hope that helps u out!

I need to bleed the radiator system. Where is the bleed valve?


Uncap the radiator, and unscrew the radiator drain plug. Normally, this drain plug is located on the inside bottom of the radiator, but models will vary. Once the drain plug is unscrewed, coolant will rush out into the drain pan. If there is not a drain plug, then disconnecting the lower radiator hose will be adequate.

How do i bleed my radiator on my bmw z3 1998


you can't bleed just the radiator, you have to bleed the cooling system through the bleed holes while it's hot and pressurized and running.

two areas: bleed valve on thermostat housing, or overfill cup next to radiator.

I need to know what the coolant fill procedure is for my 2000 olds intrigue . i do not have an owners manual


What engine? For the 3.5l, jack up the right front. Remove the bleed screw that is in the upper right of the radiator. Fill the coolant recovery tank until the coolant flows out of the bleed screw. Put a paper towel or rag between the outlet on the side of the bleed screw and the headlight. Screw the bleed screw until it barely closes. Run the engine and open the bleed screw until coolant streams out of the outlet. Close and let engine warm till thermostat opens. Carefully crack open bleed screw very slightly and let air out - careful, this is killer hot steam and water. Check coolant level. Unjack car and recheck coolant level after 4 or 5 thermal cycles (cold start, warm til thermostat opens, cool down).
