How do you do an air bleed?

I have a problem with my car heater blowing cold air. Someone said I should do an air bleed to clear it. How is that done? The original problem started when I had a coolant leak and when it was repaired I found that my heater was no longer blowing hot air. Any help with this?

With engine cool, remove rad cap, top up coolant to 1" or 2" from top in rad. Start engine & turn your heater on, (not defrost) and let it run like that until it gets up to normal operating temperature. Keep an eye on fluid level in rad, & top up as needed. Let it run, until your rad fan comes on, & off, 2 or 3 times at least. That's telling you that the thermostat has opened & hot coolant from engine has returned to rad for cooling. Every once in a while while your waiting, rev the engine slightly for a few seconds, just to assist the circulation & help bleed air out. Feel the heater now & you should feel hot air coming out. Top up rad to 1'' or 2", put cap back on, all the way, top up your return bottle to proper mark/level, and you should be good to go.

My 97 bmw i put water in it and didnt bleed it now the heater is blowing out cold air can someone please help me?


Did it blow hot air before you put water in it? Why did you put water in it? It's supposed to use a 50/50 coolant mixture.

Did you overheat the motor and it quit?

Dan how do I bleed 2004 Kia coolant car temp is good but sometime at idle heater starts to blow cool hit throttle gets great heat


I agree with your logic. Attached vid addresses bleeding. Sounds like at low rpms, not enough flow to transfer the heat. So bubble or maybe a partially obstructed core. There are a couple of vids on clearing a core... GOod luck, let us know if you figure it out.

Heater only blows cold air but hoses are hot


Hi!
It appears we have an Air lock scenario and you will need to perform a system Bleed.
Park the vehicle on level ground, when cold remove coolant filler cap, start engine and leave to idle, turn heater on full and blower to max. When engine reaches operating temperature watch and listen near coolant filler, keep clear as gurgling and hopefully a boil over should occur. Top up with very warm coolant and wait as it may do it again.
Check for heat inside vehicle if warm replace coolant cap but keep an eye on temperature gauge as the ~Air lock may have moved on from heater matrix/core so proceedure needs to be carried out again from COLD.
If persistent boil ups/over attention must made in the cylinder head
or gasket area, or possibly water pump?

My car is overheating and the heater is blowing cold air


Try bleeding it.  It takes more than one time to bleed a bimmer's system.  No heat from the heater simply means that water have not made it through your heater core yet (mostly air).  But on the other hand, you mentioned air escaping out of the radiator cap.  I'm doing research for my own for the same cause.  Someone mentioned earlier that it's a symptoms of bad head gasket.  I'm still searching that.
