2002 silhoutte new tstat,radiator,belts and hoses runs hot no water at bleeder valve water pump 2 yrs old


It is running hot because have an air lock in the system. Check that the bleeder valve is not blocked . Take a hose off that is high up and run the engine until water comes out . Replace the hose and check for water in the radiator. Open the heater system to help bleed out the air.. If that fails take it to a radiator s\hop and have them pressure bleed it.

Does my car have a bleeder screw for the cooling system?


Those valves sound like fuel pressure test ports. Press down the center of valve and see if gas comes out. If it does, those valves are on the fuel rail, not in the coolant system.
A bleed valve is a bit different. Looks kind of like a grease zerk, with a small hole on its little round head. You put a small wrench on the valve and turn it as if loosening it, but only a turn or two to open it and let coolant or air out the hole on the valve. Look for it on or just close to the thermostat housing.
If you have no bleed valve, best practice is to fill radiator and overflow tank, then start car with the radiator cap off, and let engine run until the thermostat opens (upper radiator hose will get hot when thermostat opens). Now turn off engine and replace radiator cap. This usually gets all the air from coolant system, but sometimes you have to do it again.

Where is the bleeder for radiator


Bleeder is usually on the boom of the rad, small valve that needs to be depressed. Before you bleed the system, buy a rad fluid tester from auto parts store for like $5. It will tell you the condition of the fluid and the system may not need to be bled.

I have a 2.2lt 2002 Calalier and I need to change the coolent. I have looked for a bleeder valve and am not able to find one. Can anyone please tell me where the bleeder valve may be located? I have a...


Okay, radiators these days, as a rule, do not have bleeder screws, or drains. If you need to drain the old coolant, put a catch can under the lower radiator hose, and remove it slowly from the radiator. This will allow you to drain the coolant, most of it anyway. You can never get it all.

Ford falcon gl xf model 1993 overheating


If it is a 4.1 alloy head crossflow then you may have an air blockage in your cooling system and the only way to check this is to undo the bleeder valve on the thermostat housing, start the engine with radiator cap off and once engine is at running temp it should have a steady stream of coolant (no air) coming out through bleeder but if it's intermittent with air and coolant at the same time then you have air in cooling system. To correct this fill radiator with engine still running and what bleeder till there is no more air and just coolant, close bleeder replace radiator cap and problem should be solved if not replace thermostat and follow the above instructions.

Cooling system is air bound, how can I bleed it out?


Look for bleeder valves somewhere on the top of the cooling system. If you see any use them to remove trapped air. Start the engine and slowly turn the screw to remove trapped air. If there are no bleeder screws then remove the radiator cap from a cool engine. Make sure the radiator is full. Start the engine and watch for escaping air bubbles. Keep the radiator full at all times. When the engine reaches close to full operating temperature and you see no more air bubbles escaping put the cap back on. You may have to do this one more time if you experience any more trapped air in the system. Just make sure to look closely for bleeder valves. They will look like tire valves with a cap.

Cant find bleeder valve foe coolant system on 96


dr_greg is incorect. The bleeder valve is on the thermastat housing near the intake manifold. Follow the hose from the top of the radiator to the the engine. Look for something that looks like a 12mm head nut with a metal nipple comming through it. If you change your coolant but do not open this valve untill coolant flows from it you may cause an air pocket to remain in your engine, possibly causing your car to over heat.
