SOURCE: 98 Plymouth voyager brake issues

You never replace only one caliper

You do both sides

Bleeders are mounted to top of caliper

Have a helper in drivers seat to slowly
press brake pedal as you open & close

Start at back & do all 4 corners

The master takes care of it's self

Change your thermostat, flush your cooling system while your at it, make sure you bleed the air out of the system when you refill.

Overheats could this be from to much coolent rushed the radiator and refilled just Wonder if added to much coolent

If you have emptied the cooling system and refilled it, you need to bleed air out of the system using the correct procedure for your engine.
If you did not bleed air out after refilling, you will have air trapped in the cooling system and it will not function properly. You will most likely get an overheating condition.

How do i purge the cooling system after changing the thermostat

I assume you mean purging the system of air?

Many cooling systems are well designed and are self-purging. A few need to be carefully refilled and sometimes a hose or two needs disconnecting. Sometimes there are strategically placed cooling system bleed screws.

These days there are clever tools available to help avoid the fiddling about needed to bleed air from troublesome cooling systems. Basically it is a vacuum pump that evacuates the air from a cooling system before allowing atmospheric pressure to charge the system with coolant from a reservoir.

My 2002 buick century overheats and has no heat

Possible trapped in system. Bleed system, should have two small screw bleeders, one in front of left valve cover on pipe behind water pump and the other on coolant pipe outlet as you follow upper rad. hose towards engine. Engine cool, remove rad cap, open both bleed screws and fill rad until coolant flows free out both bleed ports. close both bleed screws, rad cap off, start engine and let idle until upper hose is hot to touch , shut off, let it cool down for 20 minutes, top up rad and install cap. restart car ,drive and check.

Where is the bleed valve located on a 1998 pontiac grand prix 2.8 engine? The auto parts store has never heard of a bleed valve.

Was the thermostat changed? I would suggest replacing the thermostat refill the system with new coolant and purge the air out of the system.

Over heating, even when thermostat and water pump has been changed.

Check for the proper operation of the cooling sans.
Check the drive belt on the water pump.
You may need to reverse flush your raadiator.
Some cars require bleeding the air out of the system whrn you refill it with coolant.

Good Luck

How to change a water pump on a 2000 intrepid 3.2 engine

3.2L & 3.5L Engines
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
    WARNING Do not use pliers to open the plastic drain.
  3. Remove or disconnect the following:
    NOTE It is good practice to turn the crankshaft until the No. 1 cylinder is at Top Dead Center (TDC) of its compression stroke (firing position).
    Negative battery cable Coolant recovery cap and open the thermostat bleed valve Drive belts Timing belt Water pump mounting bolts, noting the position of the longer bolt Water pump. Discard the O-ring seal.
  4. Clean the gasket sealing surfaces, being careful not to scratch the aluminum surfaces.

    Fig. Water pump bolt locations, make sure to note the position of the longer bolt
To install:
  1. Install or connect the following:
    WARNING Rotate the pump and check for freedom of movement.
    New O-ring and wet with clean coolant prior to installation. Be sure to keep the new O-ring free of any oil or grease. Water pump with a new O-ring. Torque the water pump-to-engine bolts to 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm). Timing belt Drive belts
  2. Fill the cooling system by performing the following procedure:
    1. Close the radiator drain.
    2. Open the thermostat bleed valve. Install a 1 / 4 in. (6mm) clear hose about 48 in. (1.2m) long to the end of the bleed valve and the other end into a clean container. The intent is to keep coolant off of the drive belt(s).
    3. Slowly, refill the coolant recovery bottle until a steady stream of coolant flows out of the thermostat bleed valve. Gently squeeze the upper radiator hose until all of the air is removed from the system.
    4. Close the bleed valve and continue to fill the coolant recovery bottle to the proper level. Install the cap on the bottle and remove the hose from the bleed valve.
  3. Reconnect the negative battery cable. Start the engine and allow it to reach normal operating temperatures.
  4. Check the cooling system for leaks and correct coolant level.
    WARNING Be sure that the thermostat bleed valve is closed once the cooling system has been bled of any trapped air.

Good luck (remember rated this).
