SOURCE: can't bleed coolant system on Audi A3!

In my experience with Audis, after any job requiring changing/draining the coolant the car ideally needs to be driven. With the coolant topped up to max drive the car, keep the revs up and shake the car with steering and over bumps where possible. Whatever you do make sure you take at least 2 litres of water/coolant with you, as as soon as the air lock goes, the level drops a lot and quickly. Also keep an eye on the temp gauge and avoid letting it go much over 90 degrees (over 90 on the gauge usually means its well into the hundreds) When you get consistant hot air through the heater, at idle, the level should of settled. If this doesnt work you may have thermostat issues or a blockage. Good luck, let me know how you get on.

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 ..

89 Honda civic engine loops when warm

Idle hunting is a favorite hobby of Hondas. The most common cause is a bubble in the coolant - if the coolant is drained and refilled without bleeding the system it will do that. Look at the housings where the radiator hoses attach to the engine. On top of one of them will be a nipple, like a brake bleeder nipple but larger. Open it half a turn and close it when a steady stream of coolant comes out.

Audi a6 quattro 1999 cooling system light is on ,how to fix or what fo i do?

Hi Manuel, That warning light indicates the coolant level is low. To attend the problem make sure the engine is cold. Open the filer cap and the bleeding nipple. Open the cabin heater control to fully hot and fill until all air bubbles have been evacuated from the cooling system (top up with the required mixture of water and coolant/anti freeze, about 40 percent coolant sixty water) When all bubbles have been evacuated, close the bleed nipple and replace the filler cap. Set the cabin temperature as required. If coolant is at correct level and system has been bled it is possible the sender unit may have become defective. Regards John

How to replace thermostat in 1996 Altima

Hi Bob, Wait until the engine is completely cold. (Over night is good). Drain the radiator and then look at it, identifying the top radiator hose. Follow it to where it joins the engine. and there you will see a domed housing held in position by three bolts. Remove those and lift the housing where you will find the thermostat. As you have forgotten to mention what engine is fitted into your vehicle it is difficult to be very specific with directions. Some Nissan engines are fitted with bleeding systems for the cooling system. You will need to look and identify anything with a label which states "Do not open when hot.' The bleeding nipple will be above the height of the top tank of the radiator. If you find one, it means the system needs bleeding of all air. Remove the rad cap and loosen the bleed screw until coolant flows from it in a small stream. Fill the required amount of coolant/anti freeze and top off with water and keep it flowing until all air bubbles are expelled from the bleed screw and then close the nipple. If yours is a system which needs bleeding the bleeder on Nissan's is often situated on the surge tank ontop of the intake manifold. Regards John

99 do you bleed out air from cooling system?

There is no need to bleed air out of the system as the Northstar is self purging.

If you are having overheating problems the most common overheating problem with the Northstar engine is a blocked purge line. It's job is to purge air out of the cooling system.
There is a small diameter hose coming from near the top of the coolant tank(Not the cap!),this is the purge line.
With the engine idling,pull the purge line from the tank,if there is no coolant flow from this small hose,it is blocked and this will cause overheating.If the hose is clear, check for blockage at the nipple on the tank.

Air locks in the Northstar engine shouldn't be a problem as the system is self purging, given that all hoses are clear.

Can you bleed the water cooling system on 1999 mercury cougar

This is extremely important on some cars, for instance my BMW. 1. Have the car parked in a slight uphill slope. Make sure there is enough coolant in the expansion jar.
2. Start the engine and wait for the thermostat to open (upper radiator hose becomes warm).
3. Open up the radiator bleeding nipples slightly with a large screwdriver (bleeding nipples normally made of plastic with a '+* for a screwdriver to fit, at the highest points in the cooling circuit).
4. Allow air bubbles to fizzle out until you get a steady stream of coolant leaking out, use rags to capture leaking coolant.
5. Then close the bleeding nipples, switch off the engine and wait a few minutes for pressure to come down.
6. Open up the cap on the expansion vessel carefully and fill just below the "hot" marking.
7. Check levels again after a few miles and refill further if needed.

Engine temp isnt consistant

What you need to do is bleed the coolant system of air. There is a metal coolant line runing from one side of the motor to the other, 1 end by the pwr seer pump & upper motor mount and the other end by the throtle body. There's a bleed nipple at each end, its a little tricky cause you have to rev the engine and open & close the nipple making sure coolant is coming out and not steam when you close the nipple. That should take care of your problem.
