Yes you need to bleed the system. There is a hole in the coolant hose going into the heater core. Back of engine at the firewall . Loosen the clamp and slide the hose part way off the pipe. Add coolant to the system expansion tank until it flows out of the hole in the coolant hose . Slide hose back onto pipe and tighten the clamp. Close cap on expansion tank ,turn on heater controls , Start engine and run at 2000 RPM for about 3 min. Continue running engine at idle until the lower hose on the radiator becomes hot. Check coolant level in the expansion tank and add if necessary when system is cool. DO NOT open expansion tank cap while system is HOT.

Domestic hot water works but no hot water to baseboard heat


If its a one story house, the system pressure should be somewhere around 10 to 12 psi. There should be a PRV (pressure reducing valve) on the domestic water line supplying make up water to the boiler. The shut off valve in that line should be in the open position unless the prv leaks through and slowly overpressurizes your system to the point of tripping the pop-off valve. If so, then the manual shut off should be kept closed then opened only to boost the pressure up a bit in the system. It kinda sounds like you are suffering from low system pressure.

If there is a vent or vents in the system, try bleeding them into a coffee cup and you may find it sputtering air/water mixture. Bleed them until you have full water flow and make sure you keep approximately 10 psi in the system.

you dont have to bleed the water it automatically takes out the air when it runs and the thermostat valve opens check the level again after a run of 5 miles or when the temp is in the middle

remember not to check when the engine is hot

Water pump location


Here are the procedures.

WATER PUMP
Removal

1. Drain cooling system. Remove timing belt. Remove right ignition coil. Disconnect coolant hose from coolant inlet housing.

2. Remove retaining bolts and separate coolant inlet housing and "O" ring from water pump. Remove retaining bolts/nuts and water pump. Remove "O" ring from coolant by-pass pipe which fits into rear of water pump.


Installation
Ensure sealing surfaces are clean. Install NEW "O" ring on coolant by-pass pipe. Lubricate "O" ring with soapy water solution.

2. Apply a .08-.12" (2.0-3.0 mm) diameter bead of sealant on mounting surface at rear of water pump. Install water pump. Ensuring water pump engages over coolant by-pass pipe. Tighten
fasteners to specification.
See

3. To install remaining components, reverse removal procedure. Fill and bleed cooling system.

Sewer smell in house since installing the new toliet and the toliet gurgles when the washing machine is on. It started with the new toliet now the gurgling and smell is also present in another bathroom.


It sounds like a vent problem.
On top of each house is a vent stack.
There should be a vent stack above each toilet, and above kitchen sink.
Look for pipes sticking out of roof.
These pipes are open to the sewer line.
When you run a column of water down a drain, the vent stack lets air flow in front of and behind the column of water.
This air flow prevents the gurgling sound.
The gurgling sound is the drain water pushing air in front of it because of a clogged vent.
If you have a two story house, there are vents that run between floors to prevent the air flow from gurgling or bubbling sewer air into each drain as water column moves down pipe.

Look for bird nest over vent pipe on top of house.
Run a snake down into pipe from roof and see if the is a stoppage.
You many need to call plumber to track down each vent and the cause.
For example if there are quick-vents installed inside a wall and the quick vent is no longer working.

You can also take advantage of fixya phone support.
Fixya expert will walk you through the steps for a price.

Location of radiator bleed valve on a 1999 pontiac grand prix.


Looking at the engine from the front of the car, on the LH side there is a black pipe that comes up from the water pump housing and on top of that is a small screw that will bleed the air in the coolant system.

Change thermostat on gm 3400 v6


Drain coolant at the radiator drain. Remove air intake hose and MAF sensor assembly. remove throttle cable bracket and disconnect cable linkage. Remove throttle body bolts and disconnect coolant hoses to throttle body. Loosen heater hose pipe and remove heater hose from rear of pipe. Remove radiator hose from thermostat housing. Remove top thermostat housing bolt. Loosen and almost remove lower thermostat bolt. You will need to slide your wrench and hand under the exhaust crossover pipe to gain access. Loosen the bolt until you can remove the thermostat housing, it should be slotted to clear the bolt. Replace the thermostat and reassemble. Bleed cooling system using the two bleed screws (one on thermostat housing and the other on the passenger side of the engine where the heater hose pipe comes out above the water pump.

no easy fix . your water heater should be fine most likely its up to temp ,thats why its not lighting its main flame . the frozen pipe is another story you need to get the heat up in the house open any cuppord doors that have pipes in them like under a sink ( to let heat from the room get it there ) leave a faucet on hot and wait . at some point you will unfreeze . but you migh end up with a broken pipe so keep your eye out for a water leak . good luck
