On top side of radiator (near cap & where hose attaches) you'll find a small black plastic screw. With car/truck running, slowly loosen screw until anti freeze runs out. You'll first hear hiss of air, then anti freeze. Once you see stream of anti freeze, tighten screw and away you go.

I've eplaced the thermostat on my 2014 HD Ultra Limited. Apparently I was supposed to bleed the cooling system after I refilled it, but I can't find any how-to's on accomplishing that. Any tips?

Remove rad cap while cold start and run engine making sure to keep it full also check for air bleeds along the system usually near tstat or on top most cooling system component

How do I bleed the cooling system on a fiat ducato 2.8 disel

on any car with bleeders as they will look like brake bleeders on but located in the cooling system,with motor off crack them open one at a time ,this is best to do when motor is hot be careful as notto burn your self and has pressure in system ,once you open one watch for air to come out once you have a steady stream of coolant coming out close,then do other bleeders,next to do it when motor is running and bleed them ,that should do it.
hope this helped.

How to bleed clutch 2007 compass


1. Verify fluid level in brake master cylinder. Top off with DOT 3 brake fluid as necessary. Leave cap off.

2. Raise vehicle on hoist.

3. Remove bleed port protective cap and install suitable size and length of clear hose (4) to monitor and divert fluid into suitable container.

4. Open up the bleed circuit by turning the thumb screw (3) counter clockwise this will start the air purge and fluid fill process.

5. Lower vehicle, but only enough to gain access to and fill the brake master cylinder. NOTE: Do not allow clutch master cylinder to run dry while fluid exits bleed port.

6. Top off brake master cylinder fluid level while air is purged and fluid drains from bleed port. Continue this until no air bubbles are seen and a solid column of fluid exists.

7. Close hydraulic bleed circuit, remove drain hose and replace dust cap on bleed port.

8. From driver's seat, actuate clutch pedal 60-100 times.

9. Apply parking brake. Start engine and verify clutch operation and pedal feel. If pedal feels fine and clutch operates as designed, stop here. If pedal still feels spongy or clutch does not fully disengage, excessive air is still trapped within the system, most likely at the master cylinder.

10. Top off brake master cylinder fluid level with DOT 3 brake fluid as necessary.


1. Remove reservoir cap and connect bleeder cap to reservoir. NOTE: Use Bleeder Cap/Modified reservoir cap adapter Snap-on #901-059 or equivalent.

2. Connect service filling machine to bleeder cap. NOTE: Use Service Filling Machine/Brake power bleeder Brake power bleeder or equivalent.

3. Service filling machine should be pressurized to at least 2.5 bar (36 PSI).

4. Remove dust cap from bleeder valve and connect the transparent bleeder hose to bleeder valve.

5. Place the other end of hose in the bleeder container to capture the used fluid. The end of the hose MUST be submerged in the DOT 3 brake fluid.

NOTE: Use Bleeder Container To capture hydraulic fluid and Transparent Bleeder Hose To route fluid to container.

6. Turn on the service filling machine.

7. Crack open the bleeder valve (3).

8. Allow fluid to flow out of bleed port until no more air bubbles can be seen in the transparent bleeder hose.

9. Once fluid is free of air bubbles; make 15 quick actuations between clutch pedal stop positions.

10. Close the bleeder valve and disconnect the service filling machine.

11. To remove remaining air, actuate pedal 10 times slowly between pedal stop positions.

12. Check clutch pedal to see if vehicle is properly bled.

13. If vehicle is not properly bled, repeat procedure.

14. Remove bleeder cap from reservoir and replace reservoir cap.

15. Disconnect transparent bleeder hose from bleeder valve and replace dust cap.

98 Plymouth voyager brake issues

You never replace only one caliper

You do both sides

Bleeders are mounted to top of caliper

Have a helper in drivers seat to slowly
press brake pedal as you open & close

Start at back & do all 4 corners

The master takes care of it's self

How to bleed brakes

to bleed brakes is a relatively easy job for two people although it can be done by one without a pressure bleeder.NOTE keep brake fluid levels above minimum at all times during bleeding ( forgot to do it my self on more than one occasion and had to start over, trying to do too much at once) To do by your self you will need the correct ring spanner for bleed nipple, a clear tube that is a tight fit on bleed nipple ( long enough to reach down to floor) and a container with about an inch of brake fluid in it (glass jar will do it, is easier to see fluid level), Starting with the cylinder/caliper at rear furtherts from master cyl (longest brake line from tee piece) place spanner on bleeder then fit tube, placing other end of tube into container below level of fluid,. release master cyl cap/lid (no need to remove completely) undo bleeder half a turn, watch for fluid in clear tube. this should start to flow within 10 to 15 seconds (if bleeder isn't blocked with road grime clean if required), if fluid doesn't flow by it self (it should but) tighten bleeder then release again quarter of a turn, apply foot pressure to brake pedal, hold pressure on pedal till you feel pedal dropping towards the floor (half inch of pedal travel should be enough) ( fluid in container will stop air being drawn into brake lines when you release brake pedal) check clear tube for fluid/bubbles, open bleeder further quarter turn, if fluid has filled clear tube allow fluid to fill container a further eight of an inch, then close off bleeder (make sure no bubbles appear in tube whilst this is happening other wise drain more fluid till only brake fluid is visible in tube ) repeat process on opposite wheel cyl/caliper, then repeat process on front caliper furthest from master cyl , then the caliper closest to master cyl last. If two people are doing the bleeding the same clear tube and container are used,as is the order in which cyl/calipers are bled. One sits in the car and pumps the pedal until it has some resistance under foot (Whilst the pedal is held down) second person releases bleeder, first person keeps pressure on pedal whilst bleeder is released (pedal will travel towards the floor) when pedal has been depressed as far as it will travel second person closes bleeder before, the first person releases pedal and pumps the pedal again repeating the process until no air bubbles appear in clear tube at this cyl/caliper before moving to next cyl/caliper. good communication must be maintained to make this process hassle free

Why is there no brake fluid to bleeder screws on maqstercylinder in a 1996 buick skylark

Because you don't need them?

Have you ever bleed a master cyl & then
walked it to a car?

That is one real mess

Once you start to bleed the brakes, the air moves
to each wheel,no need to ever bleed a master

If you were to bench bleed it,then the air would be back in there,
as you hooked up the 2 brake lines

Have to experience those things & have a very perceptive
view of how things work,kind of a gift your born with.

How do i blled the brakes ,it has anti lock system

You can still pedal bleed brakes like old school. It is only not recommended due to master cylinder over travel and failure. In my experience this rarely occurs however, and if it does it should be changed anyway.

The most important thing about doing brakes on abs equiped vehicles is to retract the caliper cylinders with the bleeder screws open so that you dont push old fluid and possibly dirt and air up into the abs system.

The best system in my opinion would be the pull bleed system where you pump a handle by hand at each bleeder with a hose into a bucket. When the air stops and you see all fluid, tighten the bleeder screw. Second would be a push system that mounts on the master cylinder. Third would be a little bottle with fitting and hose that you hook to each bleeder so that you can pedal bleed it yourself. Fourth, the old school two person pedal bleed. Yes, you can still pedal bleed brakes. It is only not recommended due to master cylinder over travel and failure. In my experience this rarely occurs however, and if it does it should be changed anyway.

As always, bleed the wheel with the longest line first and the shortest last and never let the master run low at any point or you will induce more air.

good luck and all the best.

Bleeding brakes by my self?

can't do it by self unless you by a vacuum bleeder or gravity bleed

however, if you have ABS you may find yourself with a spongy pedal after either because you need a scan tool to bleed the ABS system
