Hi there, got trouble getting your Forester to drink? I use a 2 ltr soda bottle. Fill it with AntiF/water mix and set it upside down in the filler cap. I use 2ltr soda bottle because they fit just so purfect that they sit like they fit. Gravity does the rest, fluid seeps in nice and steady. When the bubbles stop you are gtood to go.

Changed a radiator today, drained system. Hot water will not heat now. Heating and radiators are working ok


Helen, if it is the radiator in your car that was changed, you may have air in the cooling system that needs bled out. May also be a failing water pump, thermostat,etc.

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

Why my 2000 s/70 volvo temperture hand goes to hot when driving i change the radator now this my problem


Rodney, first thing I can think of, the coolant system has an air lock in it. when changing a radiator now a days, the coolant system has to be bled properly for a successful install. Other than bleeding for air, you may have a faulty plugged core radiator. You did plug your fans back in right. links below on how to bleed air from cooling system.

02 ford explorer 4.0 overheating and suddenly blowing cold air, then hot again while engine runs cool but not long


Most likely you have air trapped in your engine, particularly in the heater loop. You need to properly bleed the air out of your radiator cooling system. The hot and cold blasts of air coming from first hot water followed by air.
Read up on how to bleed air out of your radiator system. Some systems are very difficult to bleed.
If after doing a good bleed of the radiator system the problem returns, you may have a bad head gasket or other leak in your cooling system which is injecting air into the cooling system (radiator/water cooling system).

My car is overheating and the heater is not working. I've been told it's a blown head gasket. I've also been told that I need to bleed my cooling system. So my question is, where is the co


If you have a blown head gasket, surely you will overheat because some hot combustion gases are entering your cooling system. No way you can remedy it by bleeding the system. Bleeding the system is just removing the trapped air in it. Running the engine with out the radiator cap will do the trick.

Bleeding the cooling system


look at your top radiator hose is there a small bleed valve at the top of the thermostat housing when the upper hose attaches to? If so loosen the bleed valve and allow the cooling system to purge the air out of the system you can tell when the air is out of the system when a steady stream of coolant starts to flow out of the bleed valve, if there is no bleed valve take the top radiator hose off of the engine side and allow the cooling system to purge the air out through the top of the engine that way

Engine gets hoat some time, no heat from heater. top hose seems hot to touch lower hose is cool. Drained radiator few weeks ago and problem began


Theres a strong possibility being you just changed the coolant a few weeks ago that theres air in the cooling system not allowing the coolant to cirrculate properly, look at your top radiator hose is theres a small bleed valve at the top of the thermostat housing when the upper hose attactes to? If so loosen the bleed valve and allow the cooling system to purge the air out of the system you can tell when the air is out of the system when a steady stream of coolant starts to flow out of the bleed valve, if theres no bleed valve take the top radiator hose off of the engine side and allow the cooling system to purge the air out through the top of the engine that way, but it definatly sounds like theres air in the system not allowing for the cooling system to cool properly...

Need to bleed air our of cooling system on 1992 Lexus SC400


The generic method of bleeding air from the cooling system is to use a floor jack and raise the front of the car as high as poss, then fill the coolant recovery tank full and run the engine until it just starts to overheat, high end of normal zone on gauge, then shut the engine down and run cold water over the radiator core, this will self bleed the system and the coolant will be pulled from the recovery tank, repeat as necessary, never let the recovery tank run dry or more air will be pulled into the cooling systeml
