SOURCE: How to bleed the cooling system on a 01 Ford Taurus V6 24 valve

all you have to do is run the engine after filling the coolant bottle to the cold fill mark just start the engine and let it run with the cap off the level will go down and then add more antifreeze The coolant circulates and gradually vents air out when it expands put the cap on and drive the car the next day check the level if you need it add more when the engine is cold to the cold full mark on the bottle that's it this is a simple thing that's done by running the engine have fun and good luck Stephen if for some reason your having some other problem post back we're all here to help you put hey Stephen and I'll see it o.k. -------later man!

SOURCE: how do you bleed the air from the cooling system of a 1999 v6 pontiac grand am

Refilling Procedure

Notice: When adding coolant, it is important that you use GM Goodwrench DEX-COOL?"¢ coolant. If coolant other than DEX-COOL?"¢ is added to the system, the engine coolant will require change sooner: at 50 000 km (30,000 miles) or 24 months.

  1. Close the radiator drain cock.

  2. If previously removed, install the engine block drain plugs.

  3. When installing the drain plugs, use pipe sealer GM P/N 12346004.

    Important: On vehicles equipped with the 3.4L engine, open the coolant air bleed valve. The coolant air bleed valve is located on the top of the thermostat bypass pipe/heater pipe assembly. Close the valve once a continuous stream of coolant is expelled from the valve.

  4. Fill the surge tank to the base of the filler neck.

  5. Start the engine with the pressure cap off. Run the engine until the upper radiator hose starts to get hot.

  6. If the coolant level in the surge tank is low, add the proper mix of coolant until the level reaches the full cold line.

  7. Important: After servicing the cooling system, and if the vehicle is equipped with an intermittent low coolant light, an occasional low coolant light may be encountered during some extreme driving maneuvers. This complaint should be eliminated by removing the surge tank cap and adding coolant to a level just at or above the full cold line when the system is cold.

  8. Install the cap onto the tank with hand tight pressure.

Recycling Procedure

Important: Dispose of used coolant in a proper fashion, such as in a used coolant holding tank. Never pour used coolant down the drain. Ethylene glycol antifreeze is a very toxic chemical. Disposing of ethylene glycol antifreeze into the sewer system is both illegal and ecologically unsound.

There is currently no approved method for recycling used DEX-COOL?"¢ coolant into new DEX-COOL?"¢ coolant. DEX-COOL?"¢ coolant can be recycled into new conventional coolant. Consult local listings for coolant recycling facilities in your area.

Where is the knock sensor located on a 2004 Cadillac srx v6 engine 3.6L

No sir, on the ly7 HFV6 3.6l in the 04-09 srx and cts the knock sensors are located on the sides of the engine block. Bank 1 and two are visible fringe wheel well. Not to hard to get to with a 3/8 drive 13mm socket, universal joint, and short extension. I would also check the connector with a multi meter while doing this job to ensure you have a good connection and harness is not damaged. Best of luck!

You likely have issue with the air temperature blend door, either the door is jammed (common) or the actuator is defective, but that is most often caused by the sticking blebd door, it is plastic and warpin is common.

2003 pontiac grand am bleeding the cooling system

Look on your exhaust manifold. What you are looking for is a little bleed screw. Mine is painted blue. Yours maybe a different color. When you find it start your engine and let it idle for 3-5 minutes. Make sure your heat is turned on full. With the enging running turn bleed screw counterclockwise till water starts shooting out. Let the water continue to shoot out until you get a steady stream. Once you get that steady stream then tighten. Your system is now bled.

Cooling system needs bleeding xedos 6 v6.20 where is bleed nipple

There is no bleed nipple in a cooling system. You'll need a vacuum pump and the proper adapter for the radiator.

The cooling system could have air in it and need bleeding.I would suggest a pressure test on the system.If you are sure that it has to much pressure.I would suggest a compression test to eliminate blown head gaskets or cracked or warped heads.Also check you intake gaskets.Good Luck!!!!!
