Does a 2012 2.5 Ford Fusion have a coolant bleeder and if so where is it located ?


Maintenance and Specification hen you are sure that all the pressure has been released, use the
cloth to turn it counterclockwise and remove the cap.
• 2.5L coolant bleed valve coolant bleed valve 5. Open the coolant bleed valve on the back of the engine water outlet
for the 2.5L engine or in the thermostat housing for the 3.0L engine.
6. Fill the coolant reservoir slowly with the proper coolant mixture, to
within the COLD FILL RANGE or the FULL COLD level on the reservoir.
If you removed the radiator cap in an overflow system, fill the radiator
until the coolant is visible and radiator is almost full.
7. Close the bleed valve and reinstall the cap on the coolant reservoir.
Turn the cap until it is tightly installed to prevent coolant loss.
After any coolant has been added, check the coolant concentration (refer
to Checking engine coolant). If the concentration is not 50/50
(protection to -34°F/-36°C), drain some coolant and adjust the
concentration. It may take several drains and additions to obtain a 50/50
coolant concentration.

Low coolant light stays on until system heats


Your overflow tank(aka coolant recovery reservoir) is low on coolant. The coolant expands when warm and raises the level in the tank, which turns off your light. Top off the reservoir (when cool) to the "Full Cold" line. If you have to keep adding on a regular basis, then you have a leak somewhere in your cooling system, could even be the reservoir itself.

Toyota Corrolla 1995. The heater does not work, I replaced the thermostat and have put a lot of antifreeze.


bleed cooling system, probably there is air trapped in the heater core preventing warm coolant to circulate into the heater core. try this
1 open radiator cap fill coolant and put heater in hi heat
2 start engine and wait until you see the coolant start to circulate
3 squeeze hose several times watching if coolant volume decrease
4 add more coolant and repeat 3 until coolant volume stays same or start overflowing.
5 check if heater giving off warm air or repeat 3 and 4 until warm air blows on heater.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
or find the coolant bleeder screw, do 1 and 2
open bleeder screw until coolant come out, do this several times until no air comes out when opening bleeder screw, fill coolant in radiator.

COOLANT LEAVELS HOW TO CHECK


Smokes out of tailpipe? You added antifreeze to the coolant reservoir? Did you try taking off the radiator cap and see if it is full? Do this with engine cool. Was the engine ran low on coolant? Bleeders may need to be opened slightly on each end of the engine to bleed out air in system. If coolant is full and bleeders are bled out and it continues to smoke out of exhaust then the head gaskets are probably bad.

Make sure there is no air in the system, take the radiator cap off and let the engine idle for half an hour, as the air comes out the coolant will go low, ad more coolant and then close the cap on also make sure the resevour bottle is at its mark.

Did you check the water pump? The hose should be firm when you cold start the vehicle since the thermostat is not open. Once the thermostat opens the coolant will flow provided the thermostat is working and installed in the correct orientation. Make sure the pulley for the water pump is turning and not frozen.

How do i bleed cooling system 1996 cavalier


Fill the resovoir full of coolant then put the cap on. Start the car and let the tempture get about 160 -190 depending on your thermostat. Then proceed to turn the motor off. While the motor is off locate the bleeder valve that is loacted on a metal pipe that runs to the side of the head, Slowly turn the bleeder valve between 3/4 to a full rotation then begin to let the system bleed until there is a steady stream of coolant exiting the valve. Start the vehicle again and repeat till resovoir is full and there is absolutley no air in the system. Failure to do so will result in vapor lock and ultimatley coolant system failure

LOSEING ANTIFREEZE FROM RESERVOIR


You have to make sure that the coolant fan is operating. If it does not come on at idle or in traffic then you will have an overheat problem. There are a few things that control the fan. Temperature sensor, cooling fan relay, and computer.It could also be the fan itself. Get 2-3 estimates for fixing the problem.

Coolant fill procedure


NEVER open the radiator when the car (or any other engine) is running!! The radiator is part of the pressurized cooling system (under that cap is coolant at 15psi)

Correct way to check the coolant in the radiator, is wait until the engine is COLD, then remove the radiator cap and re-fill.
