The way these are generally burped out is to let it idle with the cap off, check the coolant level frequently.

Air pockets in coolling system


Sometimes air pockets form in the cooling system when the coolant has been drained. The will result is engine overheating. This happens even after the coolant has been added and the cooling system appears to be full. Air can enter the cooling system after changing the water pump or lower radiator hose. This will affect the engine's ability to maintain proper operating temperature.

Why does my 2006 Suzuki forenzaoverheat


its busted.
fix it
do you want the list of 20 reasons?
is it leaking
is the fan belt missing or slipping
is the radiator cap bad, missiing or loose (wait till cold)
is the RAD actually full of 50% antifreeze? (cold checked only)

google will find them all, every cause.
http://asc-ind.com/cooling-system-information/common-causes-of-overheating/

or use physics?
  1. the coolant will not circulate, or Rad tubes (in core) are clogged.
  2. the Fans are dead. no air?, it will overheat, every time.
  3. there are leaks. (causing low coolant and air pockets in engine)
  4. there is steam, the engine head gasket failure deal.
  5. late timing, due top cam belt slip, makes HUGE extra heat.
  6. #5 can push a weak system over the edge (straw /camel deal)
  7. The system fails to hold 14psi pressure due to bad cap or #3,4)
number 1 can be a bad pump , is it leaking green off its tip?

Can't figure out why my car is overheating


You may have an air pocket and not allowing the engine to cycle coolant. Bleed the coolant system. You also might have a water pump that is starting to fail as in rotting fins that push coolant. Rare, but possible.
Most likely Air pocket in coolant system if it has never over heated.
Also something else can cause air pockets......
A very common problem on Subaru's are their head gaskets fail due to aged engine coolant that damages these gaskets. External coolant from head gasket leaks are going to need to get checked. Check out images on a search to see how it would look. but look along the head and engine block mating surface for wetness. Should be dry. Check to verify the difference from oil black or brown or gold, VS coolant which is green usually. Coolant has a sweet smell as well.

To check for an internal head gasket leaks, check spark plugs for the typical steamed cleaned spark plug. Again google an image of spark plug burning coolant. Very distinct look to it.

Hi, there is a gurgling sound coming from my BH5 2 litre N/A Legacy. Yesterday it started overheating, it has yet to reach past 3/4 on the temp gauge but that's only because I stopped driving it


Sounds that you are low on coolant so low that the coolant sensor is no longer immersed in it If the coolant sensor is prevented from working, due to low levels of coolant, then the engine radiator cooling fan will not be started and overheating will result. The gurgling you hear is due to air in the system. When the engine is cold remove the coolant reservoir cap. Set the interior heater to max temperature. Top up the reservoir to the maximum limit with water/antifreeze mix (2:1 is usual). Start the the engine. Be prepared to add more coolant mix as air is cleared from the system. When the top hose from the engine to the radiator gets warm give it plenty of squeezing to help shift any air pockets. The fan should also start at about this time. Make sure that the interior heater is blowing hot air. When the gurgling has stopped and no more coolant needs to be added to stay at the max level then replace the reservoir cap and secure it firmly. Allow the engine to reach running temperature. Check all hoses, junctions, gaskets water pump seal etc for any signs of leaks as it would be good to detect any cause for the previous loss of coolant.

I replaced the thermostat, now the temp guage is reading hot.


System may be vacuum locked. Also make sure you added enough coolent. Also check to make sure you didnt instal the thermostat backwards. If it is vacuum locked, wait for the engine to cool down then remove one of the radiator hoses and put it back on. let it run for awhile with the heat on high.

1998 nissna maxima , with radiator replacement car continues to overheat, with low to no heat


First, make sure engine is warmed up, then feel the top of the radiator hose, is it hot ?, if not then you may have a bad thermostat, replace with a 195 dgree, or you could have a bad head gasket.
Let me know what you find.

My '94 Honda Accord is overheating. The thermostat and sensor have been replaced, radiator is okay, fans are both working, so what might the problem be?


if your sure there is no air pocket hiding in the coolant system,pull the thermostat back out so the coolant doesn't have to reach 195 degrees before letting the coolant flow thru engine,and see if it still over heats,it might be an air pocket or head gasket,doing this will tell you exactly.

The engine is overheating at a stop but then goes down when I hit the gas. I have no Heat in the car. The radiator is full of coolant.


You may have one of several issues. Overheating at a stop indicates an inoperative radiator cooling fan, The no heat issue is more than likely being caused by an air pocket left in the cooling system from the overheating. I would suggst verifyuing the operation of the cooling fans, and then check for any air pockets in the cooling system.

Overheating


This problem is not related to your service record. It seems that you look after your car better than most. This overheating problem can be due to the electric fan that cools the engine when you are going slow and idling does not engage when required. This problem can be caused by the coolant fan relay or coolant fan motor or temp sensor or computer. This problem requires professional help that will solve your problem with at least 2 estimates.. Hope this helps. Moe
