Question about 1995 Pontiac Firebird
How do i fill the radiator
There's a bleeder valve I used on my 95 T/A, open it up and the air will come out gradually spitting a little out at a time. I replaced my radiator, took me a while to figure this out, after losing my bleeder valve, that was rough. Just don't undo the bleeder valve too much, if it falls off, good luck finding it, it's brass, so magnets won't pick it up and you'll never find it again. A bleeder valve costs at least $20 at GM. So be careful.

It may not be as simple as opening the radiator cap and dumping in the correct amount and type of coolant. Some engines are terrible about venting the air out of themselves when you try to fill them. On my 95 firebird with a 3.4L, I find it easiest to loosen the thermostat housing and fill it until coolant starts to leak from it. If you do this you will want to know if your gasket or o-ring is good enough to seal when you tighten it back up. Other wise you may need to find a plug in the block or intake or maybe even in both cylinder heads to vent the air out. Trying to run the engine to vent themselves doesn't always work and you could end up toasting your engine.
