Did this video help you?

urmastertech: I have the same accord well a 96 Ex, but wow I am going to flush the cooling in mine because I think it just is running hot and it needs a refill, but after I will definitely use this video to bleed the system. Thanks so much! I have always wondering what that noise is when I start my car. I thought it was like a air compressor or something to level the car out, but I guess its the ABS pump. I am not sure if you have done a video on this before, but my accord's gauge cluster's shift lights don't light up and if those don't then I am not sure even if the rest of them work. Also the gas gauge stays at full (I will eventually test the floater thing) which isn't that big of a deal since I just look at how many miles, but it would be nice to have that working too. Wow woops I just rambled a lot lol, its almost 5am, that's probably why. Anyway if you do answer awesome, if not its okay lol I will look around, its just I have, but never found anything about like why the shift lights and possibly the other warning lights besides seat belt I think dont work. Thanks and keep up the great work! :D

Bertminator: Anyone tell you you look a bit like George Clooney? Love your videos by the way.

Rini Sugiarto: Hey Eric, my 2001 audi overflow line nipple snapped that goes to the reserviour(top up radiator fluid) So now I blocked it with a screw on both ends.

Jordans03: Soooooooo what do you do if your cooling/Radiator fans dont work?

jacraig881: I've got an 03 dodge ram (there is my problem lol) heat has never worked but never needed it until now, the heater core is very clogged I confirmed that, what can I do if only a tiny bit of fluid runs through it, I've tried the air compressor trick to no avail! Plz help what cleaner can I run through it.

Jose Morales: Hello, Eric here is my situation I have a 02 dodge ram 1500 sport 4.7magnum v8 engine and noticed that it was a little bit of a cooling fluid coming from the thermostat, so I replaced it and oil changed. When I fill the reservoid because is connected to the radiator, and it no additional cap. I ran the engine and it was fine, but when I run it on the expressway it started to overhead to the maximum, I pull over let it sit for a bit 1hr. And started again to make it home 5 minutes away. What is your suggestions and how can I tell that the radiator is full? ALSO REPLACE THE LOWER HOSE AND CLAMP. 

MrSkillfullyDone: What are some of the problems with air in the system?

rxzy vfx: what if airconditioning doesnt work lol 

Nick Vellios: If you measure what comes out and the same or a little more new coolant goes in, its a good sign that your ok. Sometimes its tough getting those fans to kick on.

David Mercado: Hey eric the car guy. I have a question for you. I have 93 civic ex. And the problem I have is the fluid in the radiator is going back into the resovior and flowing out of it. People telling me its the head gasket. But the car is not mixing my oil or fluid. And my motor not shaken also it not smoking white out the exhaust. I change the thermostat the hoses. The radiator too. Any help please thank you. Keep up the good work with your videos. 

arno maas: thanks for the tips !

Indie Guy: To be clear you turn it all the way to eat and youre supposed to turn on the heat while bleeding with system or is the heat supposed to be off.

TheGeorgiaGent: I bought one of these funnels, based on this video. It works

Ronald Reyes: My car isn't overheating but my coolant reservoir is bubbling, I see many people are saying it might be a bad head or head gasket. Do you have any thoughts on that? 2003 Ford focus zts

sergio rivera: Hey Eric. How would I perform this on a Porsche 944. I'm changing the heater control valve so I'm thinking this might be necessary.

Chris Martin: I drive a 2007 buick lacurne and the temp gauge stays at half but the engine heat comes into the roosterpit of the car plz help

miguel guerra: If only it was that simple on a MR2

TheMandoman12: Eric ...on a 1995 toyota camry ...with the 2200 engine I get the upper and lower radiator hoses sucking in on themselves...what would cause this ? I only notice it after the engine has cooled down, after it has been used or running. as far as a bleeder ? it seems this particular model does not have one.

potastew: So this may have been asked but if the surging continues I've read it might be the IACV or FITV but which would be the one to try first?

Amco Celo: Isn't the temp gauge suppose to be at half? After i did my coolant flush my temperature stays maybe line below half. Normal or what? And yeah my cooling fans kick on when the ac is on, but i don't see them kick on without the ac. 98 Honda Accord Ex Coupe V6 3.0. Thanks!

Joe Raper-The Salesman: Eric did what you said on the bleeder for air..my fans are kiking in no bubbles. And does not get hot..now The Salesman feels. Good about putting another person in a 100% good vehicl..thanks

Yuchen Feng: Hi Eric, do I need to bleed cooling system, if I only drain and refill the coolant?

Harry Squatter: How come my Acura service manual doesn't say anything about bleeder valves or funnels? All it says is putting the radiator cap on loosely and run the engine. 

RHONDA MOBLEY: I have a oldsmoblie intrigue that my husband replaced the radiator, however its not running hot but when u shut the engine down the water bubbles back in the over flowing jug what can possible be the problem

alterego667: What's the best way if a Mazda Rx8 does not have a bleeder valve. ???

cedieboy cedie: where is the bleeder on odyssey 2006?

Iain McLennon: Just finished watching your video on diagnosing overheating problems, and now watching the bleed video. Just wanted to say how much I appreciate the no-frills, straight-ahead approach to these procedures. Thank you for the insights.

ivan vasquez: I'd start showing more videos on cadillac cts. I have a 2008 with 150,000 and I've changed a few power components, and now I'm having to figure out where the AC drain value is located. I'm hoping it's located in the firewall on the passenger side. But we will see, I got tired of running around checking all these other locations. I even changed actuator that didn't need it I think, but at least I now have a new one now. Lol. Bless.

Everdavid Flores: I have a honda 2002 is overheating when i turn the ac on.when keep the car running temp go up to like 3/4 of the temp but then if i stop the car it goes all the way hight so i check both fans are working well,i change the thermostat shoul i bleed the cooling system out??? 

Alome Chanthasinh: You are the man!

Ibrahim Beelut: hey eric. great video as always.i recently did a cooling overhaul in my E39 bmw 528i. my problem is that in the winter time heat only comes out on the driver side. i'm assuming it's my heater core as it was not my thermostat. do you know if its possible to rebuild the heater core and would you recommend flushing the system with prestone radiator flush and what not

RECKLESS XAVER: I replaced the thermostat, radiator cap, and the radiator. If I used water instead of coolant radiator, will my car overheat?

Jong Nicol: hello all, i'm having heater trouble about my Pontiac Montana van. I tried to drive this Montana van for about 30minutes up to an hour and even more just to reach the normal operating temperature.. I observed the temperature gauge it reached the normal operating temperature but STILL NO HOT AIR is coming out both in front and rear vents (always cold air). The heater and fan control knob is pointed to high already. No engine overheat temperature, I checked the radiator fan it runs well when required. The radiator coolant level is okay and the overflow tank as well. I already did coolant bleeding or burping several times but still no hot air. Your help or any suggestions is highly appreciated.
