on most Discovery's the fuel rail will have a schrader type valve (usually on the right side of rail -US pass side). let the car sit a while before you do this and have some rags to collect any fuel that shoots out. (wear protective eyewear, and dont stand directly in line wiht this as it can shoot a distance). press the valve (like a tire valve) slowly, and fuel will squirt out until the pressure is equalized. in some cases, wiht weaker pressure regulators, you may not get much out at all. thx

SOURCE: Having trouble bleeding cooling system on 2006 Range Rover. No heat and fan is blowing

The easy way need to be done:
-Make sure the is not presure in the cooling system before do thisor release carefully.
-Disconnect the upper hose from the radiator and fill water (coolant)
through the hose to the engine. If water can't get in beacuse the thermostat is closed. Simply remove it and fill untill full.

How do i bleed coolant system on mg zr 2003

after filling cooling system there is a bleed screw on the coolant pipe that runs round the end of the cylinder head.rh has you look under bonnet 8mm head,loosen that or remove it may be blocked! the heater can give problems if you have completely drained the system or have had a major leak it may be airlocked! make sure the heater is set to hot, run engine until coolant flows from bleed screw, close bleed screw, remove coolant cap carefully,and top up.leave to stand for 20 mins or so. re top up run engine @2500 revs if the heater is cold and you have no bleed screw on the heater hose. there is a valve that fails in the heater hose bypassing the heater matrix.that may need replacing if the heater is cold, hope this helps.

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.

Air lock in cooling system

Did you drain the system and your refilling? There may be a small bleed valve on a high spot of the cooling system, try looking for it and bleed any air through it. Good luck!

1992 325i has airlock. How do I use the bleed screw to get the air out?

Just open it up with the engine running. Then watch until coolant starts to come out and then top off the system after it cools down, make sure the coolant bottle is full on shut down..

Cooling system airlocked

Airlocked? Often by pulling a line of an air buble will be relased. moving hoses so they can fill with water and the air can pass works too. You did not mention the engine you have. Mine is the 2.3, when I drained, flushed and refilled the system had no major problems. there is a air bleed line from the water outlet (under ps pump, left side of engine) to the plastic bottle, right front. the restriction is in the niple at the pastic bottle is it pluged preventing the air to bleed? I always drill a 1/16 hole in the flange of a new thermostat when replacing it, that helps the air to escape and the system to better fill. The thermostat is on the return to the engine, water pump inlet, under the exhaust manifold (not a great design)

Howto fix airlock in radiator

The generic method of bleeding air from the cooling system is to use a floor jack and raise the front of the car as high as poss, then fill the coolant recovery tank full and run the engine until it just starts to overheat, high end of normal zone on gauge, then shut the engine down and run cold water over the radiator core, this will self bleed the system and the coolant will be pulled from the recovery tank, repeat as necessary, never let the recovery tank run dry or more air will be pulled into the cooling system l , if it still overheats then you need to have the head gaskets checked with a gas analyzer for hydrocarbons present in the radiator or recovery tank
