THE BLEEDER IS PART OF THE UPPER HOSE HOUSING. THE ENTIRE HOUSING MUST BE CHANGED WITH A NEW ONE. THIS IS NOT AN EASY DO-IT-YOURSELF KINDA JOB. IT SHOULD BE REPLACED BY A PROFESSIONAL. HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA, GOOD LUCK

    I have another view to save time. On my Intrepide 2000, i cut the stell pipe one inch under the bleeder and loose the top plastic intake and remove the bleeder. I put the new bleeder and add a rubber hose with 2 clips on the stell pipe. All that job in 45 min and 50$ and still ok from that time. sylvain232@htm

Mcgyver468 nailed it, spot on. I had the same problem at 70k miles on my '02 Intrepid. Found the part for about $60 at NAPA (dealer wanted $100) and replaced it myself. Was a lot of work because you had to remove the upper part of the engine cover just to access the bolts, and also it was a pain to release the clamps in the back of the engine holding the coolant lines for the heater (which creates tension of the valve housing unit and makes it very hard to install). It took me about a day of on and off working on it because I was so frustrated with all the work it entailed (and I had a Hayne's Repair manual which was fairly straight forward...though it did not explain the lines very well and I had to work my way through that).

Now at just over 100k miles, the bleeder valve is leaking again...why it is made so shoddily...for something that sits on top of the engine and gets very hot...is beyond me. I have seen estimates for $350-$400 to have a shop repair this. I believe I am going that route this time just to save me the hassle.

Would air in the linez of my 04 doge intrepid make i over heat


Hi David, I'm glad to help. Anytime a radiator, water pump, head gasket or any thing to do with the cooling system is replaced it will have air trapped in the system. Here's how to fix it. Loosen the bleeder screw near the thremostat housing and fill the coolant bottle until you see coolant running out of the bleeder. Once the coolant is running out of the bleeder, start the engine and let it bleed some more until all the air is out of the system. Hope this helps and have an awesome day David.

How to install a coolant air bleeder ,in a donge intrepid 2000


I am assuming you are talking about the cooling system of your motor. You would put the bleeder which is a t shaped connector into your heater hose. This bleeder should have a cap on thetop to let air out of it.

Coolant bleeder


loosen the bleeder and fill the cooling system until the coolant until full in the tank or it comes out of the bleeder. Then shut the bleeder and start the vehicle. Let it run until the thermostat opens then top off the antifreeze. That is if the bleeder will open, they are usually stuck and won't open.

I just changed a water pump on my 97 dodge intrepid, put everything back together, works fine but my cooling fans wont come on. I turned on A/C and they still dont come on, all wiring is hooked back up,...


You need to go through the proper coolant system bleeding procedure.. There is a bleeder valve in the front center of the intake manifold. You must fill the system, run the car with the heat on until the thermostat opens, top off the coolant and open the bleeder until coolant a steady stream comes out without any air bubbles. Close bleeder, top off coolant, and replace radiator cap. Run car until fan cycles twice on its own.

Leak


Thats a Dealer part only (if its the Coolant Bleeder). Last I checked they DO NOT manufacture the Bleeder "Block" (on which the valve originally resides on the stock bleeder). The new OEM product consists of the block (w/o bleeder valve) and your top coolant piping (which now is manufactured with the beleder valve on it - [on the piping itself]) that runs to the upper radiator hose towards the front of the engine and through the "V" of the block. Count on taking a whole day executing this. But can be done with all DIY hand tools. You will need to disconnect any and all sensors/lines in the way of the intake manifold, as it will have to be taken off while you replace the assembly as a result of Chrysler's wonderful new design for thier bleeder valves for the 2nd gen Intrepids. (Stupid Chrysler)
