Any radiator I ever flushed had a valve near the bottom of the radiator that stuck out. I am concerned about noise though-sure your water pump is not going out?

SOURCE: overheating problem on a 1998 BMW 318ti

Perform a liquid block test (with the bottle of fluid over the radiator mouth.) If the blue liquid turns yellow or clear, you have hydrocarbons entering the cooling system (usually via head gskt.) If not, you have ruled out a costly repair.

Sounds like it overheats pretty easily, without t-stat! This block testing liquid is cheap, and will verify a suspected leaking head gasket without lengthy diagnosis. Hope it's better news, but good luck!

SOURCE: Trying to flush the radiator--cannot find the bleed valve for coolant.

The drain should be on the drivers side at the bottom of the radiator, facing the driver. It's a plastic "wing" that unscrews. There should also be a bleeder for exhausting the air from the system when you refill. The bleeder I'm familiar with is a brass screw screwed into the thermostat housing. (where the top hose attaches at the engine)

SOURCE: Where is the bleeder screw located on the back

The bleeder fitting, should be close to the pressure line connecting to the back side near the top of the wheel cylinder assembly.In fact, it should be directly above the line on the wheel cylinder.I have seen where a Mazda b-2000 pickup used only one bleeder fitting for both brakes,was there at the end of the line,being on the left rear wheel..

Hi,
The bleeding nipple would be near the water pump rad hose inlet and beneath the thermostat valve cover.
Bleeding is easy, just fill up the radiator and the reservoir w/ coolant run the engine for 5 min and open the bleeding nipples! or Just fill up the radiator before u start the engine, early morning, run the engine for 5 min. untill the thermostat valve opens, open the radiator cap( use a wet rag ), carefull not to open it instantly! Fill up the radiator while the engine runs, add coolant while u slightly reving up the engine.
Do these and open the heater to maximum, air might be inside the core too!
Hope that helps u out!

You need to bleed the air from the cooling system. The bleeder valve is located just behind the water pump housing. It is a small hex head (7MM) screwed into the coolant bypass tube. Pour coolant into radiator with the valve opened until coolant comes out of the valve. The cooling fans will not come on until the temperature reaches 225 degrees.

How to bleed cooling system


to bleed the cooling system on a vs supercharged statesman .

Makes sure you have coolant in the radiator and over flow botthe.

turn the heater to the on position and on high.

make sure you have plenty more coolant close by.

with the radiator cap off and the engine idling .

now top coolant up and place radiator cap on.

increase idle revs so the system pressurises.

now the system is warm and pressure .

you can open the bleeder 1 by 1 starting at the highest point.

1st couple of times you open the system you will get a lot of air ,you can stop bleeding this nipple once there is a good stream of coolant flowing.

do the same with other nipples as there is 3 bleeders in total.

Once all air is out do not open radiator cap again top coolant up in overflow bottle only.

double check coolant level again when its cold ..

Does my car have a bleeder screw for the cooling system?


Those valves sound like fuel pressure test ports. Press down the center of valve and see if gas comes out. If it does, those valves are on the fuel rail, not in the coolant system.
A bleed valve is a bit different. Looks kind of like a grease zerk, with a small hole on its little round head. You put a small wrench on the valve and turn it as if loosening it, but only a turn or two to open it and let coolant or air out the hole on the valve. Look for it on or just close to the thermostat housing.
If you have no bleed valve, best practice is to fill radiator and overflow tank, then start car with the radiator cap off, and let engine run until the thermostat opens (upper radiator hose will get hot when thermostat opens). Now turn off engine and replace radiator cap. This usually gets all the air from coolant system, but sometimes you have to do it again.

How do u bleed the lines to remove the air from the radiator on a 93 nissan maxima se dual overhead cam with the bleeder valve


Most modern day front wheel drive vehicles have at least one (and sometimes, 2) bleeder screws. They are typically located at or adjacent to where the upper (and lower ) radiator hoses attach to the block. Open them slightly and start adding coolant...as air is forced out the liquid level will rise. When you get liquid from the bleeder screw, you can then close and tighten.

How do i bleed cooling system 1996 cavalier


Fill the resovoir full of coolant then put the cap on. Start the car and let the tempture get about 160 -190 depending on your thermostat. Then proceed to turn the motor off. While the motor is off locate the bleeder valve that is loacted on a metal pipe that runs to the side of the head, Slowly turn the bleeder valve between 3/4 to a full rotation then begin to let the system bleed until there is a steady stream of coolant exiting the valve. Start the vehicle again and repeat till resovoir is full and there is absolutley no air in the system. Failure to do so will result in vapor lock and ultimatley coolant system failure

Look for a bleeder screw at the highest point of the coolant system, it is usually located on the thermostat housing. Once located open screw with engine off and cool, and pour coolant into the coolant resevoir/ radiator until steady stream of coolant starts to come out of bleeder screw.
