Air pocket must be in the block and preventing thermostat from opening. how do i bleed that out

remove top hose from rad pour antifreze in hose towards block to prime water pump once pump primed it will throw air out so once rad hose full and coolant running from rad
re conect hose and start car with rad cap off once rad fluid starts to flow in rad fill it up with 50/50 premix and install cap
wait 45 secs or soo then remove cap carefully as not to make a mess now check fluid levels when still running add if required

also make sure if serp belt that is has water pump spinning in right direction

some cars like the cavalier will allow the pump to be spun in reverse burning the bearings out and cooking the water pump

In car Heating

When engine is cold, remove rad cap & have a look at coolant level, as well as your return bottle. If you have to add to your rad level, make sure you have engine running & the heater on (not defrost) when your adding, and let engine get up to normal operating temperature & let rad fan come on & off 2 or 3 times before you top up last time & then put rad cap back on. If coolant is low in rad & return bottle has lots in it, you may want to replace rad cap in case it's faulty.

Need help to change thermostat in 1998 Chevy 2500 pick up

the rad cap is on the top of the radiator on the passenger side,as for the thermostat....locate the upper rad hose(comes out of the top of the rad aprox 3" wide) it should be on the driver side of the rad. Follow the upper rad hose from the rad to the engine,the housing for the thermostat is at the end of the hose.
1:drain the radiator(there is a drain **** at the bottom of the radiator protrudes from rad looks similar to a wing nut)
2:Remove the two bolts in the thermostat housing(there may be some nuts holding some ground wires there that you have to remove before you can remove the thermostat housing bolts)
3:remove the housing ...........note: make note of the position of the thermostat before removal.
4:clean gasket surfaces install new gasket \ silicone (automotive grade silicone can be used with or without gasket) 5:insert new thermostat in the proper position.
6:replace housing and hose and top up the rad
hope this helps.......Thanks for choosing FIX YA!

No hot air

Generaly 2 possabilities, low coolant level or cloged heater core/hoses. Check low coolant first as this is thew easiest and usually the simplest solution. With the engine cold, remove the rad cap and overflow cap. Fill the rad full and the overflow to the cold level and replace the rad cap and overflow cap. Start and warm up the engine. If you still do not have any heat, then let the engine cool and drain the rad. Remove the heater lines and try to bolw air through them (if cloged, then replace them). If the heater lines are clear, then blow air through the heater core intake and see if you get a good flow out from the heater core, if no, replace heater core.
