Sometimes this bleed method is not enough.
Bleed air out of the very top water hoses on the engine (when cold!) whilst filling. Then run the engine for a short time, check tank level again and if required refill when cool enough to be safe, repeat this if water level drops in tank again. When water level in header tank stays constant run the car up to full temp. and see if problem is fixed. Then check level again when cool.

good luck. Hope this helps.

    When and if this solves your problem. Do not forget to replace the coolant additive in the correct concentration to protect your engine waterways.

    It will not harm your car to run for a short period with just water to prove that you have solved the problem, but you must replace with the correct coolant additive.



    good luck.

HOW CAN YOU TELL IF YOU HAVE A BAD WATER PUMP IN 2001 DEVILLE


Hi there
A bad or worn water pump ,you will either boil the engine water system or loose water or coolant while driving and when you stopped or water [temp] light will come on when it gets down in the header tank,AND
you will hear the grinding noise as soon as you start the engine and the water pump pulley will move about when running and water will start leaking .
Let me know how you go.

Putting in the antifreeze


remove header tank cap undo drain plug at bottom of radiator and bleed screw at top of radiator once all coolant has drained retighten tthe drain plug pour the new coolant into the header tank waiting for the coolant to drain through system and watch for coolant to come out of the bleed screw , shut bleed screw top up the header tank to the max level replace cap.Now run engine ,dont drive just stay with revs at 1500 open bleed screw to let any trapped air out and wait for the cooling fan to cut in , allow engine to cool down and refill header tank if required and repeat the running/bleeding/fancutting in procedure until when engine has cooled the coolant is near the max mark on header tank

Heater blowing cold air and I'am loosing water from my plastic container


You have a coolant (radiator fluid) leak somewhere. Low coolant will cause you the no heat problem but things could get a lot worse. Have a pressure test done on your radiator. Look for any coolant leaks from your vehicle. If you find leaks, tighten or replace that part if necessary. Also have your thermostat checked as well.

Engine miss at 70 to 100 kph .lower speed ok


I had the same problem with my 2001 Jag s type v8 at around 100k My mechanic tested my coils packs and replaced 2 of the 8 he said you don't need to replace them until they go bad but that cured mine also make sure you are using premium fuel also could be injectors clogged or water in the tank try fuel injector cleaner it will cure either of these problems

I have a 2001 grand am v6 that I have to add coolant every few days. The engine is running a normal temp, and the cooling fans are working.


There are only 3 possibilities:
1) Coolant is leaking on the ground - puddle under the car.
2) Coolant is leaking into the engine crankcase - engine oil is "milky" looking.
3) Coolant is burned during combustion process - defective head gasket or intake gasket.
Let me know what you find and we will go from there.
