[DML] Re: Overheating question

How are you bleeding out the air? The only proper way I know of is to
use a pressure tester to pressurize the system and then let the air
out at the small hose fitting on the top right side of the radiator
and the bleeder screw on the thermostat housing. If you are trying to
do it by running the car and heating it up that is very "hit-or-miss".
A definitive test for a warped head and combustion gases is a
combustion gas tester. They are not expensive. You can also use the
coolant presssure tester. If you see the pressure shoot up quickly
that can be a sign of a blown head gasket too. If you are lucky? you
may not have warped the heads, only blown a gasket. Before tearing the
motor apart try bleeding it thourghly.
