Re: [DML] Re: Overheating question



This is how i bleed the air when i removed all coolant and i have had 
ZERO problems, i have done this 3 times now. I also have the coolant 
bleeder system on my car that attaches to the t-stat housing and goes 
to the small hose that is connected to the overflow tank.

#1. jack up rear end of car as high as you can get it before the front 
end touches the ground.
#2. remove overflow cap.
#3. slowly pour your 50/50 mix of antifreeze and water in the overflow 
tank.
#4. The air will naturally rush to the highest point of the car, the 
part that is in the air.
#5. Let the car down very slowly.
#6. Start the car and let it run for about 2 min with the overflow cap 
off then let the car rest a few min.
#7. Start the car and let it run till it gets hot just before the 
cooling fans come on.
#8. replace overflow cap and you are done.
