REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
NOTE: When adding coolant, it is important that you use GM Goodwrench DEX-COOL® (orange colored, silicate free) coolant meeting GM specifications. On these vehicles, if silicated coolant is added to the system, premature engine, heater core or radiator corrosion may result. In addition, the engine coolant will require change sooner; at 30,000 miles (48,000km) or 24 months.

CAUTION
Never open, service or drain the radiator or cooling system when hot; serious burns can occur from the steam and hot coolant. Also, when draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantities. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.

2.4L Engine
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Properly drain and recover the coolant to a level below the thermostat.
Unfasten the cover-to-outlet pipe bolt, which is accessible through the exhaust manifold runners.
Raise and safely support the vehicle.
Disconnect the radiator and heater hoses from the outlet pipe.
Unfasten the outlet pipe-to-oil pan bolt and the cover-to-outlet pipe bolts.
Remove the thermostat, then clean the old gasket material from the mating surfaces.

08 equinox low heat


Low or poor heat usually means your thermostat is stuck open. To check with a cold engine, remove the rad cap and start the engine look inside there should be no water flow, if its flowing the stat is open.

Air lock in cooling system


If the question is, what do you do, you would bleed the system.
If there is no bleed screw near the upper radiator hose, you would need to run the engine with the radiator cap loose until the thermostat opens and then add coolant.
It can be very messy.

2006 Chevy equinox ls 3.1 how do you bleed the radiator coolant system


If you look on the passenger front of the engine you should see a pipe coming up from the water pump housing. There should be a bleeder screw on the top. use a 9/32" socket to loosen the bleeder. Start the engine and keep bleeder open until coolant comes out. Close it and let the engine come up to temp while periodically opening the bleeder to let any additional air out. Keep an eye on the coolant level and top off as necessary.

2003 chevy cavalier overheats and heater will not work, have changed the thermostat and radiator hoses


MANY OF THESE VEHICLES REQUE YOU TO "BLEED" THE AIR OUT OF THE SYSTEM. THE THERMOSTAT HOUSING IS HIGHER THAN THE RADIATOR TOP,THUS PRODUCING AN AIR BUBBLE AT THE THERMOSTAT/HEAT SENSOR. THER IS USUALLY A SMALL PLUG OR BLEED FITTING IN THE AREA OF THE THERMOSTAT HOUSING. WARM ENGINE AND BLEED AIR SEVERAL TIMES AS REQUIRED HOPE IT WORKS !!!!!

Just had thermostat replaced. After 5 days of use:


You may have air trapped in the system. Take it back where they changed the thermostat and have them bleed the system. If you want to DIY post back.
