SOURCE: cant find bleeder valve foe coolant system on 96

dr_greg is incorect. The bleeder valve is on the thermastat housing near the intake manifold. Follow the hose from the top of the radiator to the the engine. Look for something that looks like a 12mm head nut with a metal nipple comming through it. If you change your coolant but do not open this valve untill coolant flows from it you may cause an air pocket to remain in your engine, possibly causing your car to over heat.

SOURCE: overheating problem on a 1998 BMW 318ti

Perform a liquid block test (with the bottle of fluid over the radiator mouth.) If the blue liquid turns yellow or clear, you have hydrocarbons entering the cooling system (usually via head gskt.) If not, you have ruled out a costly repair.

Sounds like it overheats pretty easily, without t-stat! This block testing liquid is cheap, and will verify a suspected leaking head gasket without lengthy diagnosis. Hope it's better news, but good luck!

SOURCE: Bleeding Clutch Cylinder with no bleeder screw

I have not tried myself but see if the link below will work for your case. It is not the same model as you have but most vehicles have the same components for the non electronic parts. http://www.2carpros.com/forum/1988-dodge-dakota--bleding-air-out-of-clutch-master-cylinder-vt248517.html

Try blowing the radiator core out with compressed air from the engine side to remove bugs and other debris. Make sure the fans turn freely with no noise and that they both come on when the engine heats up. Make sure the radiator cap has a good seal underneath. The three items at the end of your post are not likely. Check the radiator coolant level after it has run, then cooled off--it should be right at the top of the filler. If not, replace the hose going to the reservoir.

Where can is the cooling system bleeder valve located?


Automotive cooling system has no bleeder valve. Removing trapped air (bleeding) from the system is done by loosening the upper radiator hose with the engine running, and letting some coolant to ooze out. If the coolant coming out already has no bubbles with it, then you already expelled out the trapped air. Simply running the system with out the radiator cap will also do the trick.

How do i drain the anti freeze from my 2005 grand prix?


there should be a plastic value near bottom of radiator on left or right tank although i dont recommend using this because i seen them stick and break when u try to open them your best bet is to remove the lower hose from radiator

On a side note after you refill the system make sure u go through the bleeding procedure to remove all air from cooling system . This motors are notorious for trapping air in system which leads to overheating no heat etc.

to bleed system locate the two bleeders screws (one will be on top of thermostat housing) (other one will be on bypass pipe that comes out of water pump depending on which motor you have you may not have this one )

Fill coolant system start car turn heater on high and let it run working back in forth between the two bleeders opening one at a time until all air is removed add coolant as needed make sure you bleed system until thermostat opens then continue to bleed until all air is removed

We have a 2000 Pontiac Montana and it's overheating and has no heat. We have a fairly new (3 months old) radiator and the thermostat seems to be opening and closing, and the antifreeze is circulating when...


Yes,You need to bleed the air from the cooling system,use the bleed valves,one is near the thermostat,and the other is on a pipe sticking up toward the front of the engine,make sure there is enough coolant in the system,and start and run the engine when it gets warm,not hot,open the bleeder near the thermostat,and watch for coolant,and air to come out,leave it open about 10 to 25 seconds,then close it and wait about 3 minutes or so,and bleed the other bleeder.You may have to repeat the process more than twice,and keep the coolant reservoir full.If this was helpful,please rate,thank you

Need sequence to blrrd brakes 02 dakota

Bleeding the Brake System
Brake fluid tends to darken over time. This does not necessarily indicate contamination. Examine fluid closely for foreign matter.
The primary and secondary hydraulic brake systems are separate and are bled independently. During the bleeding operation, do not allow the reservoir to run dry. Keep the master cylinder reservoir filled with brake fluid. Never use brake fluid that has been drained from the hydraulic system, no matter how clean it seems.
  1. Clean all dirt from around the master cylinder fill cap, remove the cap and fill the master cylinder with brake fluid until the level is within 1 / 4 in. (6mm) of the top edge of the reservoir.
  2. Clean the bleeder screws at all 4 wheels. The bleeder screws are located on the back of the brake backing plate (drum brakes) and on the top of the brake calipers (disc brakes).
  3. Bleeder screws should be protected with rubber caps. If they are missing, the orifice may easily become clogged with road dirt. If the screw refuses to bleed when loosened, remove it and blow clear. Aftermarket caps are readily available.

Bleeding the ABS System
This is accomplished using the same methods as for the base brake system. Refer to those procedures.
ABS system bleeding requires conventional bleeding methods plus use of the DRB scan tool. The procedure involves performing a base brake bleeding, followed by use of the scan tool to cycle and bleed the HCU pump and solenoids. A second base brake bleeding procedure is then required to remove any air remaining in the system.
  1. Perform base brake bleeding. Refer to the appropriate section.
  2. Connect the scan tool to the data link connector beneath the dashboard.
  3. Select "Antilock Brakes" followed by "Miscellaneous", then "Bleed Brakes". Follow the instructions displayed until the unit displays "Test Complete", then disconnect the scan tool and proceed.
  4. Perform a base brake bleeding a second time.
  5. Top up the master cylinder.

Hope helps (remember rated and comment this).

Car is heating without notices


first check the coolant level refill if its less, bleed the coolant there could be presence of air in your cooling system, the bleeder is on the top of your thermostat housing.
2. after bleeding and still overheating, check the cooling fan if its working or not when the temperature hits 90 deg.
3. check radiator it might be clogged and dirty thats why water can not properly circulate.
4. if still overheating remove thermostat valve and observe.
5. after doing all those tips and overheating still persist the next possible cause is your water pump must be worn-out.

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.

2001 Cadillac Deville coolant bleed screw Location??


I had the same problem with my 2001 Cadillac Deville, like you I had replaced literally everything thermostat, water pump, radiator, temperature sensor, reservoir and cap, hoses etc....I didnt have any leakage. I was told I had air in my coolant system. After a lot of research and running across the right mechanic I was able to locate the bleeder and remove the air from my lines. No problem since. The bleeder is located on yhe left side of the radiator on the crossover, mines was sideways..Hope this helps someone before they spend money for new head gasket problems..Try this it helped me....

Heater issues


right beside the degas bottle top thare is a black hose sticking out that has a screw in plug in it that can be removed with a straight screw driver. remove this plug and start vehicle and let it run with heat wide open and on high till a STEADY stream of coolant is presant then replace plug - dont over tighten. this bleeds the heater core.
