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: is there a coolant bleeder

If you want to put coolant in and you have air in the system.
1. Look for a flat plug on one of the upper coolant pipes unbolt and fill at that point.
2. You can also take hose of radiator and fill that way if you can't find the plug.

(If your looking to drain the radiator should have a drain at the bottom of the radiator on left or right side.)

SOURCE: 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe-front passenger side floor is wet

Sounds like condensate from the air condition coil, not from a heater coil.

If the drain for that is stopped up, can "overflow" into passenger side of car, very common problem.

If freon is low, causing the coil to freeze over, then thaw when you are parked, very likely.

And that will be clear liquid, not color of anti-freeze.

SOURCE: where is the coolant bleeder valve on 2000

On the engine next to the thermostat housing on most cars. It is a regular flathead screwdriver type screw. if you can't find it. Then slowly , without removing it, turn the radiator cap at operating temperatue. Until you hear it hiss and only coolant will come out. Do this very slowly andd carefully. The water is hot. Be careful.

Opened bleeder valve on charger 2.7. Only vapor comes out. Bad pump or thermostat?

Continue to add water until the vapor "lock" is purged of all air. All coolant bleeders are supposed to reside higher than the radiator/coolant filling area...the coolant should flow out of the bleeder valve before tightening the bleeder shut.

Bleeder valve where is it

Are we speaking of brakes or coolant system?
If its brakes the bleeder valve is located on the the caliper usually has a rubber cover over it. On most it's either a 8 or 10 millimeter socket to brake it loose.
And if your speaking of the bleeder valve for the coolant system it's located on top of the thermostat housing. Hope this helps you out.

Okay, radiators these days, as a rule, do not have bleeder screws, or drains. If you need to drain the old coolant, put a catch can under the lower radiator hose, and remove it slowly from the radiator. This will allow you to drain the coolant, most of it anyway. You can never get it all.

Changed back brake pads on 2004 tahoe , now the brake light and stabilty light is staying on . why? and what do i need to do?

If you have disc brakes on back, did you open the bleeder valve to compress the caliper piston? If not and you pushed the fluid back into the system, you could have blown the seals in the antilock brake system, This doesn't happen all the time, but does happen. If you did the brakes will still work, just not the ABS.

Just replaced my thermostat on 2004 Impala. Temperature guage goes from cold to hot then goes back down. Heat seems to work when the temperature guage is lower but as soon as it goes up the heat turns...

i going to assume you have the 3.4L or 3.8 L motor
these motors are notorious for trapping air in coolant system
which sounds like what your problem is
not a problem tho they have bleeder screw built into them
there should be one or two bleeders (depending on model year and motor size)
i think yours should have two
one should be on top of thermostat housing
other one right above water pump on bypass tube
open one bleeder at time with motor running until u see just water and no air
repeat with other bleeder
continue to work back and forth between the two bleeders until thermostat opens
then work back and forth a couple times after thermostat opens
keep checking radiator add coolant as needed
