How do I bleed the coolant on a 94 Buick lesabre?


All cars are much the same as you just need to get all the air out. Make sure you have the heater turned on full and the coolant tank topped up. Leave the top off the coolant tank. Start the engine and leave it idling. Keep an eye on the temperature gauge and the coolant level. The temperature will increase and then drop slightly as the thermostat opens. Top up the coolant as necessary until the temperature is normal and the coolant no longer drops. Put the coolant cap on and take the car for a short drive, say 15 minutes while leaving the heater on full. Top up as necessary once you get home. That should do it, but it is worth checking after each drive for the next day or two. Some cars can be very hard to clear all air and will have one or more plugs on the top of the engine or radiator. If you have those, you can slightly unscrew them to let any air out, but it is rare to find this on a modern car.

Coolant


Its not too difficult. The is a canister that contains the coolant. Just undo the cap and top up. Be sure you use coolant to the same specs that is already there. If not, you'll have to drain out the old one and top up with completelty new coolant

The light is flashing on the top left of the 4 squares. Its 1996 Audi A4 1.8 auto. What does it mean


Is this you instrument cluster? vtraudt image
If so, top left would be coolant temperature warning light.

What is the coolant temp gauge reading?

I would suspect faulty coolant temp sensor.
Also check if your coolant reservoir sensor (plugged into the bottom of you coolant tank) is plugged in (I often forget to plug it back in; the retainer also easily breaks and the plug can slip out).

I pur coolant into my radiATER BECAUSE IT RAN HOT I FILLED RADIATER UP WHEN CAR RUNNING THE COOLANT CAME OUT OF TOP OF RADIATER


Hi Joe. For your information you never but never fill a radiator when the engine is hot and engine running. Must first have a cool engine open the radiator and if is only topping up coolant be first sure that the water is clean and fresh ( drain the old coolant first ) and after leaving a space for the coolant top up and always not overfill . Then you start the engine and let it run in idle with radiator cap off, turn also the heater on to hot air for helping the coolant to circulate. When you see that the temperature rise close the radiator and continue with engine on idle until the fan starts. Leave the car running till the fan cut out. Switch engine off,let it cool down - for dropping the pressure - and after you do open the radiator to check for any need for topping up coolant. As soon as you have completed just close the radiator.

Cooling system


Raise the car front end as high as possible with a floor jack, fill the coolant tank to the top, run the engine until it reaches just short of overheating, shut it down and run water over the radiator, this will burp the air out. Repeat as needed. Don't let the coolant recovery tank run dry during procedure.
