RE: [DML] Bleeding cooling system



Burping will definitely work, as I've done it myself, but in my experience 
the way easiest for me to bleed the system is to remove air via the bleed 
screw in the thermostat housing on top of the waterpump.

Once the car has warmed up observe operation/lack of from the fans and be 
sure to watch your temperature.  Once the car is warmed up, STOP the engine 
and SLOWLY open up the bleeder screw and you will hear air hissing very 
audibly and then coolant will come out after a short while depending on how 
much air is in the system.  Close the bleeder screw.

Restart vehicle and repeat procedure until no more air comes out and only 
coolant.

Have a rag handy.  If you have a steady hand though only a few drops of 
coolant will escape.
