How do u bleed the water system for overheating?


The most common issues with the cooling system can be broken down into 3 categories. (Fluid Type) (Fluid Purity) (Stuck Thermostat)
(Fluid Type)
If your vehicle is cooled with *Dexcool* then your system will need to be flushed regularly. About every 7k-10k miles or so. The reason being, Dexcool congeals (gels) as it gets older, and will clog the entire system from radiator, to the heater core, stopping the flow of coolant.
(Fluid Purity)
If you are replacing your coolant with tap water, it will not have the cooling capacity of a proper 50/50 mix.
(Stuck thermostat)
Coolant will not circulate if your thermostat is frozen shut. There are ways to test it, but in most cases, it is easier, and sometimes cheaper, to just replace it.
Now, to answer your original question, take the top radiator hose off at the radiator, then loosen the butterfly bolt located at the bottom of the radiator. Not all radiators are equipped with the bleeder, so simply take off both the top, and the bottom hoses. This will drain all coolant from the radiator. To do a "fluid flush" is a bit more difficult. Remove all hoses going to the radiator, remove the thermostat, and at the thermostat connection to the engine, purge the system using a garden hose tapped from your home. A shop will do the purge with 50/50 mix to flush the system and catch the old fluid as it comes out, but not needed if you do it at home. Flush the radiator the some way, using the top at the hose connection point. Just run the water through until it comes out clean. Reattach all hoses and thermostat. Go to your local parts store and buy a 50/50 premix that is appropriate for your region.(cooler for warm weather, warmer for cold) and do not add water. They come mixed ready to put in the vehicle. Make sure you fill it up where you are supposed to. If you have the old style radiator, the cap is located directly on the radiator. If you have a reservoir, fill it up to the line. *****Make sure you you start the vehicle to operating temperature to fill the reservoir to the appropriate level.***** I hope this helps. Good luck!

2010 CDX Holden Cruise has it got a bleeder valve screw for radiator/heating coolant? if yes where is it located? Need to bleed the wifes car so she stops complaining to me bout noise. Please help


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?

1990 BMW 525i 2.5L engine overheats after rplaceing water pump, stermostat,fan clucth,radiator


There's trapped air in the cooling system.
  • You need to remove the bleeder screw on top of the radiator when adding water to the expansion tank.
  • With the engine running, pour water into the expansion tank till you see air go out through the bleeder screw's hole.
  • Just keep adding water until no more air bubbles come out then just put the screw back in place.
  • Then fill the expansion tank to it's normal level/line.

Dodge durango 2004 hemi over heating after all the repairs i have done new radiator,water pump hoses , clutch fan, radiator cap and 3 different thermostats,


The cooling system has to be bleed of air.To do this locate the bleeder on the coolant inlet on engine. Remove the bleeder and the radiator cap, fill with coolant until there are no more air bubbles coming out of bleeder. Top off resivor close bleeder replace cap. Start and let it get to normal operating temp, If all is good now you are finished. If it still overheats let it cool off until there is no pressure on upper hose .Carefully remove cap and repeat bleeding process

I have a 2003 chevy impala. just changed the thermastat because the temperature was fluxuating. Since changing the thermastat the temperature gage constantly read in the red, however the coolant level...


You probably need to bleed the cooling system properly.

Open the cooling system bleeder screws.

Slowly fill the cooling system with a 50/50 coolant mixture until coolant runs freely out of bleeder screws.
Close the cooling system bleeder screws
Install the coolant pressure cap
Start the engine.
Run the engine at 2,000 - 2,500 RPM until the engine reaches normal operating temperature. (midway on gauge)
Allow the engine to idle for 3 minutes.
Shut the engine off.
Allow the engine to completely cool.
Top off the coolant as necessary.
Run engine again at 2000 - 2500 RPM until the engine reaches normal operating temperature.
Allow engine to idle until cooling fans come on. It should come on with the gauge about 3/4 of the way to red. - if it gets to where is touches the red, shut down immediately.
When the fan comes on, put your hand behind the fan and observe the temperature of the air coming from the fan. It should feel hot. If it is blowing cold air, the coolant is not circulating through the radiator like it should. This could be caused by lots of things including an improper/defective thermostat, corroded water pump impeller, or a blown head gasket.

I have a 94 dodge stealth and when u press the clutch it just stays on the floor. I have replaced both the clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder but it has fixed the problem yet.


  • Okie dokie,,,they have a really hard bleed success rate.. you can do it by your self ...follow my steps...
  • make sure the pedal is off the floor in the up position
  • use the 10mm unscrew the bleeder screw on the slave cyl about 2 full revoloutions
  • pour fluid in the clutch res start to look down watch it come out the bleeder screw, wait a few seconds and tighten the screw.
  • keep filling the resevoir..it can be messy then put the top cap on the resvoir snug...
  • now you bleed, untighten the bleeder screw a 1/4 turn then go push on your clutch pedal, it if does not go down loosen another 1/4 turn...
  • if the pedal hits the floor>>>>tighten the bleeder screw first then pick-up the peadal...
  • make sure the resevoir is half full ....
  • okay loosen the bleeder screw 1/4 to 1/3 turn again, push the peadal to the floor... let it go all the way down.
  • then go tighten the bleeder screw , and pick up the pedal....
  • keep an eye on your resevoir ...
  • note if you ever remove the clutch cap to fill you must bleed the system..the cap does not hold pressure but it does provide a suction...!!!

How do I bleed the air out of the coolant on a 2000 Monte Carlo LS 3.4L?


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.

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)

HOW DO YOU PURGE OR RELEASE AIR ONCE YOU REPLACE RADIATOR, WATER PUMP AND THERMOSTAT?


the thermostat (on bmw replacement parts) have an arrow that has to be installed facing upward.if this was done correctly,to bleed the system usually there is a bleeder screw on or near the expansion tank(where you fill the coolant) and possibly on the thermostat housing. i would recommend opening both bleeders and keep filling the system with coolant closing the lower bleeder first and then allow the rest of the air purge from the other bleeder screw.make sure the coolant stays full and be patient you can't wait TOO long.
