A top mounted valve does not have an air bleeder since the air can exit thru the valve and just go thru the return line to the pool. There is no air trapped in a dome to purge.

Did you change fuel filters lately? Maybe something isn't tight and you are pulling air. Do you know how to purge the system of air when you change the filter? Maybe you could try that (without an air bleeder open) and see if it is leaking somewhere. If it is pushing out fuel somewhere then it can also pull in air. Please rate my answer so I get points awarded for it.

We have a 97 chevy lumina that had water in the gas and we need to know where the fuel pump reset button is


There is no reset button for an overload situation on the fuel pump. The only reset is for when the vehicle gets into an accident, which activates on impact. So, I don't think this is what you are looking for. I would suggest looking at the fuse panel, which would be located in the engine compartment and it should be labeled. If this is not your problem, then you probably have a problem with the fuel pump itself or the fuel filter is plugged with water. The fuel filters do not like water, so by purging the gas through the bleeder valve you will be putting all that water into the fuel filter. I would suggest removing the fuel filter and purge the fuel/water at that location. You should replace the filter anyway, so I would remove it and see if the pump still works.

I would also suggest putting a couple of bottles of "Heat" or similar products in the tank, because you will not be able to get everything out.

Good luck....

1999 Chrysler 300m heater won't get hot fan blows but doesn't heat


Is there enough anti-freeze in the system?
If so perhaps the system needs bleeding.
On the front of the engine, on top near the big upper hose goose neck and nestled between the runners of the intake manifold is a small nipple that looks like a brake bleeder (10MM). This is a cooling system bleeder, a close cousin to the brake bleeder. When opened it will purge the system of air- likely the culpret you are experiencing. on a cold or just warm engine, this can be slightly opened with a wrench and the air can be "Burped" out. Attach a 1/4" clear hose to the nipple and open the bleeder until you see all the air has left the manifold. (Run the hose into a bucket and dispose of the used anti-freeze properly.)
if that doesn't do it, maybe the thermostat is stuck in the open position. Replace it with a cold engine and use a new gasket each time.
If all else fails, the heater core may be plugged.

    I have an older Hayward pool filter. Is there a link to dowload instructions for replacing or adding sand to the filter?


    Here is how I do it. Open the top. Open the drain on the bottom to allow the water out. Remove the plastic water difusser on the top. With a small can, scoop out the sand. When you get to the laterals, remove them for inspection. The sand below the laterals if fine, it does not need to be removed. Put the plug back in. Replace any laterals that may be broken (probably none) Fill the filter with water to about 6 inches above the laterals ... maybe more. The water will protect the laterals from the new sand as you fill the filter. It will also help the sand to pack in around the laterals. Continue filling until you are about 3 inches below the difusser that will go on the top. Make sure you don't bury the little black hose. The purpose of the little black hose is to remove the air from the filter during operation. The hose should ultimately stick up into the inside of the top (cover). I think your filter takes about 300 # of sand. Double check with your professional pool supplier where you purchase your sand. I normally will fill the filter with water before I replace the top. You may want to put on a new "O" ring too ...

    This new sand should last you at least 4 to 5 years in non commercial use. After that time, you may want to replace the top 4 inches with new sand.

    Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

    How do i bleed the clutch on a fzr 1000 year 89


    Is there a bleeder nipple at the clutch slave cylinder? If there is, make sure the clutch's resivoir is full, squeeze the lever and while it's held down, loosen the bleeder. Close the bleeder before letting up on the lever, then repeat until the air is purged from the system. If there is no bleeder, you will need to crack open the fitting from the line to the slave cylinder while holding the lever down and re-tighten it before letting the lever back up; repeat until air is purged. If you have to open the fitting, be aware that you may need to follow up once or twice since there is a possibility that air could still be entrapped below the fitting. Good luck and safe riding.

    I hear air sounds in the top of my filter how do I get the air out?


    It should eventually purge just by running. If it continues, you could have a suction leak in your piping. Check drain plugs in pump. Check strainer basket cover and gasket for leaks. Check any control valves for leaks, Check the multiport valves for leaks. If the basket was ever out of the pump, some item may be bouncing around inside also.
