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: does my cooling system have a air bleeder valve? I

According to my data base it has one, but it doesn't give the location. The ones I've seen are located on the thermostat housing or on the engine close to it and they look like a brake bleeder valve.

SOURCE: I need to locate the bleeder valve for a '96

Did you replace the thermostat? If not replace it. Is the cooling fan running? If not check the fuse & thermal relay. If it has a bleeder valve it will be located on the highest part of the cooling system. It may not have one. With the engine cold remove the radiator cap. Make sure the radiator is full. Set the heater control to Hot. Start the engine and watch for escaping air bubbles. Keep the radiator full until you see no more air escaping. If it continues to overheat repeat the process.

I have a 2003 honda Odyssey. Does it have a releif valve or nut to release trapped air in my cooling system? I just drained my radiater and replaced my therastat and its running hot when im driving.


locate the coolant temperature sensor nearto the thermostat housing. Unplug, loosen then plug back up. To bleed, loosen slightly to release trapped air. Once air is relieved, only liquid will come out at this time the air bleeding is done.

2003 Range Rover runs hot I replaced the thermostat but it has pressure in the line that pushes water out and causes it to run hot


You have trapped air in the cooling circuit. Or your water pump may not be operational. Or you have blockage somewhere else in the cooling circuit. By the way...... Did you check and or replace the cooling system cap. You should test that cap once a year.
Some of these cooling systems can be tricky. They place BLEEDER VALVES at the high points in the cooling system. Allowing you to remove all the trapped air out of the closed loop cooling system. The cooling system has to have a certain amount of pressure for purposes of flow. That pressure should be less than the value stated on the cooling cap. Look for bleeder valves, - you will have to fill the vehicle with them open. And then Fill and bleed as the engine is running. When the engine is running you will crack the bleeder open until fluid comes out close it and repeat several times until all the air is removed from the system.
The fact that the system is building up pressure is not an indication that the pump is working. ( think steam engine) when the fluid approaches boiling temp the pressure increases. Please do not use just water to fill your system.
(A) It lowers the boiling temperature of the fluid and
(B) Promotes corrosion (oxidation) in the block and cooling circuit.
I hope this helps you......

Cooling system is air bound, how can I bleed it out?


Look for bleeder valves somewhere on the top of the cooling system. If you see any use them to remove trapped air. Start the engine and slowly turn the screw to remove trapped air. If there are no bleeder screws then remove the radiator cap from a cool engine. Make sure the radiator is full. Start the engine and watch for escaping air bubbles. Keep the radiator full at all times. When the engine reaches close to full operating temperature and you see no more air bubbles escaping put the cap back on. You may have to do this one more time if you experience any more trapped air in the system. Just make sure to look closely for bleeder valves. They will look like tire valves with a cap.
