SOURCE: Do I need to bleed the system after replacing the radiator cap?

Definitely recommended - Process is fairly simple, let the vehicle idle and/or reach normal operating temperature - turn the"bleed screw" slightly open and note as the air bubbles escapes from the screw. Also make sure the radiator is topped up with sufficient coolant. Funny enough, the mechanic should have taken care of this process after replacing the thermostat....

SOURCE: opel astra headlight adjustment

two screws on each headlight control the direction the headlights are aimed. One screw, usually at the top but sometimes below the headlight, adjusts the headlight up and down. The other screw, located to one side, controls the headlight from right to left. Turning the appropriate screw one direction or the other will change the direction the headlight points.
In order to aim your headlights you need to have a flat vertical surface you can aim your headlights at in front of a level surface on which to park the car. If your driveway is level your garage door is the perfect place to aim your headlights.
The tools you will need for this job are simple. Masking tape is used to mark where the headlights are to be aimed and a screwdriver is needed to adjust the headlights. A tape measure will be necessary to measure the distance of the vehicle to the surface you're using to check the aim and to measure the up and down distances from your marks

After I replace the tensioner elbow and refill coolant, do I need to get air out of the lines?


Yes you do have to burp the system. With radiator cap off (as opposed to the expansion tank reservoir which should also be off) the engine cold and the system almost full, squeeze the top and bottom radiator hoses sharply. Top up fully and replace the two caps. Bring the engine and water coolant to full temperature until the cooling fan kicks in. Wearing gloves, squeeze those hoses again with the engine running. You should feel the water surging. Turn off the engine and leave to cool. Remove the radiator cap and fill the system to the top. Replace the radiator cap. Remove the cap to the reservoir bottle and top that up to the MAX line. Job done and all the air pockets removed.

How do I bleed the cooling system?


Turn the heat control to max and remove radiator cap - add coolant as much as possible. Make sure overflow container is filled to correct level - then Start car and run - after the thermostat opens water level may go down some - keep adding coolant till it is totally full. Turn engine off and put radiator cap back on tight.

How can I bleed a air pocket on a 95 Toyota Camry do they have a bleeder valve if so where is it located


Air pocket in the cooling system i'm assuming?
Remove radiator cap when the engine has cooled down (verify by collapsing the upper radiator hose to make sure there is no pressure remaining) start the vehicle, turn your climate control to high fan, hottest temp. Add coolant to the radiator as needed. You should have good heat coming out of defrost when the cooling system is successfully bled out.

Air pocket in radiator


Remove the radiator cap (the pressure cap, not the overflow tank cap) and run the engine for about 15 minutes, or about five minutes after it reaches normal temperature. This should "burp" the air out of the cooling system.

I havbe a 1996 honda accord lx 2.2 L i had a large hole in the radiator. i replaced the radiator and im still having overheating problems. any suggestions?


Did you replace the thermostat? If not replace it and then have a pressure test run on the cooling system. Also make sure the fan is coming on when it should. If you are loosing coolant with no apparent leak and see white smoke out the exhaust then suspect a blown head gasket.

Started overheating on short drives.


Check radiator coolant level (while it's cooled off) and see if you notice and leaks while cap is off. If coolant isn't all the way to the cap then you probably have air pockets in the cooling lines. Top of radiator and fill reservoir to correct level. To remove air run the car for a few minutes with cap either on but not closed or get a funnel that fits right into the cap opening (same as oil size) and run car. It will rid off all air but coolant will rise after air is gone or if no air present. Let it cool down for an hour or so and level should be at cap level or below. Top off if necessary and put cap on tight. If you see a leak then fix it immediately.

2001 vw beetle service manual ? need to change water pump, how hard is it? dont look to bad.


Check this procedure to how to replace a water pump (DIY Complexity: Moderate / Time: 3.5 hours):

Parts:
1. Water Pump

Tools:
1. Screwdriver
2. Scraper
3. 3/8 in. Drive Ratchet
4. Cooling System Pressure Tester
5. Needle Nose Pliers
6. Socket Set
7. Radiator Hook Tool

Supplies:
1. Coolant
2. Silicone Sealant

Steps:
Step 1 With the engine off and cold, open the hood and locate the vehicle’s water pump.
o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.
o Tip: Before removing the radiator cap, squeeze the upper radiator hose to verify that the cooling system is not pressurized.

Step 2 Remove the radiator cap.

Step 3 Install cooling system pressure tester. Apply the pressure indicated on the radiator cap or in the owner’s manual.

Step 4 Inspect cooling system components for leaks.

Step 5 Place a drain pan under the radiator. Open drain valve or remove the lower radiator hose to drain cooling system.
o Tip: Depending on the vehicle, lifting the vehicle may be required to gain access to the lower radiator hose.

Step 6 Remove the drive belts or serpentine belt.

Step 7 Remove any hoses connected to water pump.

Step 8 Unbolt water pump from engine. Remove the water pump.

Step 9 Using a gasket scraper, clean the mating surface on the engine block.

Step 10 Install new water pump and new gasket. Tighten bolts to manufacturer’s specifications.
o Tip: You may want to use a light bead of silicone designed for water pumps.

Step 11 Re-install any hoses and belts that were removed.

Step 12 Re-install drain plug or lower radiator hose.
o Tip: Squeeze the radiator hose. If it feels soft you may want to replace the hose at this time. Always use new hose clamps.

Step 13 Refill radiator with a 50/50 mix of coolant and distilled water, then pressure test the cooling system and check for leaks.

Step 14 Fill overflow reservoir with same mixture.

Step 15 Leave the radiator cap off, start engine and let it idle. You should see the system“burping” bubbles of air. Refill the radiator to the top.
o Tip: Most air is expelled after a couple minutes of idling. Be cautious of potentially hot fluid overflowing.

Step 16 Install radiator cap.

Step 17 Road test vehicle, keep an eye on the engine temp gauge if vehicle runs hot, there still might be an air pocket in the cooling system. The cooling system should be topped off after vehicle has fully cooled down.

Good luck.
