When you drain & refill a cooling system air is often traped in places like the heater core. If so the coolant level will appear full before it really is. To burp you need to add coolant till full or just over. Adjust the heater control to MAX heat. This will let full force of water pump to push air out of heater core. Fan speed dose not matter. Next start the motor & let it idle. As it warms up the thermostat will begin to open and close. This is when you should see fluid level drop as trapped air is pushed from system ( add fluid as needed). If this is working right you should fell quite hot air coming from heat vents. If air doesn't seem hot enough adding RPM by pulsing gas pedal should do the trick. And that should do it.

    Will an air pocket in the coolant system cause it to overheat or over pressurize on a 2001 Nissan Sentra ?


    1. The radiator cap if working correctly it will release pressure in the system provided the cap you have is the correct pressure setting. If you are having a problem with pressure then replace the cap with a new radiator cap with the correct pressure setting. Do not use a cap with a pressure setting other than the original equipment pressure spec. So you do not go to the parts store and buy any radiator cap on the shelf that fits because they come with different pressure ratings and some of these will be totally unsuitable for your car.

    2. If the pressure valve is stuck in the "old" cap the pressure release system will not work.

    3. Overheating
    Air pockets in the cooling system can definitely cause overheating and can retard coolant flow through the system. If you are draining the radiator to replace the coolant or replacing the radiator you need to follow the correct procedures for bleeding air out of the system for that particular engine after coolant refilling. Some engines have bleeder screws on the cooling system to assist in the air bleeding procedure and some don't.

    There are various causes for overheating so don't assume it will necessarily be solved by bleeding any remaining air from the cooling system and replacing the radiator cap with one that works.

    Other causes can be...........
    1. Faulty cooling system thermostat. (Replace the Thermostat)
    2. Faulty water pump, especially if the impellers have corroded away or have disintegrated in the case of those design genius water pumps with plastic impellers. (Replace the water pump)

    3. Cooling fans not working and if so the cause needs to be tracked. Check that your fans are kicking in. If the engine is overheating the fans should be running because they will switch on when the coolant reaches a specific temp and well before the coolant gets excessively hot.

    4. A partial blockage in the coolant passages inside the engine but not in the radiator if you have a new one. If the coolant is not changed at the required intervals(frequently the case with many owners) or is over diluted with water you can get a build up of debris. If products like stop leak have been used in the system this can create similar problems with partial blockages inside the engine coolant passages.

    5. A compression leak into the cooling system.
    If you have bled air from the system and have continuous air bubbles in the cooling system I would suspect a compression leak. In that event a basic leak down test will show if you have compression gasses leaking into the cooling system and from which cylinder(s). The spark plug is removed and compressed air is forced into the cylinder via the spark plug fitting and air bubbles will show up in the coolant of there is a leak into the cooling system.
    --------------------------------
    Have the problem with overheating addressed immediately. Running the engine with an overheat condition will cause expensive engine damage many times the cost of fixing the overheating issue.

    Bleeding cooling system


    sounds like air in system ...
    Leave the radiator cap off, turn the engine on and let it run until the radiator "burps": You will see the coolant level drop and may see or hear a large air bubble come to the top as the system burps.
    Keep an eye on the temperature gauge throughout this process

  • Refill the radiator to the top and coolant reservoir as needed. Put the radiator cap back on. Note that if the engine runs hot after this procedure there may have been another pocket of air that "burped." Let the engine cool down and then add more coolant to both the radiator and the coolant reservoir.

    I have a 1992 buick lesabre and my heat stopped blowing and when I'm just sitting the heat get warm in car but when I'm driving the heat is cold


    Many things. Could be bad thermostat. Head gasket out. Fan/blower relay bad/defective. Not enough antifreeze in cooling system. Check antifreeze for level and strength ith tester. Have to take radiator cap off first, but do it when vehicle is cold. Do you know how to change a thermostat? don't attempt if never done before. Pressure test cooling system or take to autozone/advance auto/o'riellys to have pressure tested. This will tell if your head gasket is blown. You can buy a cheap 5-ball antifreeze tester and check the coolant condition. One more solutions. Coolant system may have to be burped. Possible vapor lock in coolant system if antifreeze change recently and not burped properly.

    You would vacuum the system then fill with coolant into the vacuum using the same connection as they do at the factory.Any garage will have a cooling system vacuum refill set.

    My temp gauge is rising to hot. I'm worried about the car overheating.


    That's what's happening. Have you had any work done recently that would involve the coolant having to be drained? If so you may have air in the system. Click my screenname and go to my Tips and Tricks to see how to burp air from the cooling system. If it's not that, you may have clogging in the radiator (at temperature, part of the radiator will feel cool), low coolant (add some), or a stuck thermostat (if burping the system doesn't work and you still overheat, take off the radiator cap when the car is cool and drive that way - it should stay ok). Also if the thermostat is stuck, the lower radiator hose will be cool when the upper is hot. Last cause would be a tear in the head gasket between a coolant galley and a cylinder - a compression check would show this.

    1999 honda accord engine does not work normally,the sound rises and fall continously


    i guess you are saying the idle goes up and down.. if so first make sure the cooling system is full and has been burped ... if good then bad ect...electronic cooling tempurature sensor will also cause this... if you have had any work done to it lately hopefully no one has tried to adjust the idle... really make sure no air is in the cooling system.. it is not easy but has to be burped goooooood

    Overheating


    Who did the replacement of the parts? Was it done at a shop or at home? Do you know if the cooling system was "burped" after the parts were installed and the coolant was refilled? If you're not sure, burp the radiator. This is easy to do. Jack up the vehicle so that the thermostat is angled upward. Start the car and let it idle until it's 3/4 of the way to overheating, then shut it off and allow it to cool down somewhat. Then pop the cap, let the coolant drain down, and refill it. Restart the vehicle and repeat the process, until the coolant level doesn't drop anymore.

    What you're doing is this - anytime the cooling system is opened up, especially when the fluid is drained and parts are replaced, air gets into the system. When you reassemble and refill with coolant, you trap air bubbles in the system. Since the system is sealed, it operates under pressure. As the car runs, the coolant and the air bubbles are circulated. The bubbles get caught behind the thermostat (if you have it angled upward) and keep it from opening. This causes the engine to heat up to the point of overheating. You want to allow it to get about 3/4 of the way to an overheat so that you know the air bubbles are blocking the thermostat. Shutting down the car stops it from heating up to the point of damage, and allows the system time to cool off so that when you pop the cap, you don't get an explosion of coolant in your face. Once it's cool enough to open the system, you open it and release the pressure. This allows the thermostat to open and bleed the bubbles upward to the open cap, where they "burp" into the air. The space they took up fills with coolant, which is why your coolant level drains down. You top it off and repeat to make sure that all the bubbles are out. You'll know you're in good shape when you let it run and it gets to operating temperature and doesn't overheat anymore. Let it cool that final time, open the cap, and since you have no air pockets left in the system, nothing will burp out and your coolant level won't decrease. Then you should be good to go - put the cap back on and drive away happy.
