devolutiondav Thompson: I have a 1994 BMW 3 series it has a clutch fan and an electric fan how can
I tell if the clutch fan is okay?
Plague Doctor: Damn it.
Why does no-one give tips on full system air bleed?
Turns out my water pump has a friggin air bubble in it that won't come
loose. The bastard.
All I know so far is to try putting it on an incline. I also thought of
maybe using a plunger on one of the pipes? IDK.
Anyone got some tips?
REP MONSTER: after bleeding my ladys cooling system on her 94 honda accord lx , the a/c
does not work now. it blows but no cold air ??? it worked fine before
MrSkillfullyDone: What are some of the problems with air in the system?
Fook Yu Fook Mi: 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
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.
arround history facts: want to know is the heater core same heater control valve ?? specially
bypass hose heater valve cable you mean ????? thxx
Mytechtime: Eric, I bled my cooling system (attempted to) but the coolant just came
leaking out from under the funnel's radiator cap. It's the only one that
fit, but it's just a slight hair too big. Is there any other way to bleed
it? (84 Lebaron, non pressurized expansion tank)
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
robin1987100: I'd like one of those funnels, seen it before a while ago but haven't been
able to find that or a similar product in europe. Would come in useful on
my motorcycle too, tilter radiator cap and a lot of coolant hoses that need
to be removed to preform maintenance. Its not hard to get the air out, but
a lot will be spilled each time.
Indo Lanka: Please help. My car overheated (running with a/c and lights on after
driving about 100km's) and cut off the engine on the freeway. Now the
engine light comes on and cannot drive it for more than 10 min and heats up
like a hell. Any advice with out finding the codes or is there any way of
finding trouble codes manually on this vehicle. Searched everywhere could
not find for this vehicle.
Inspironator: Hi Eric, When I had the water pump replaced on my Ford F250 with the 7.3 L
powerstroke engine, the coolant temperature doesn't rise up to where it
used to. After seeing this, I thought, bingo. Can I use the funnel
approach to eliminate air trapped in my system or is there a
different/better way for my engine? Awsome tips...from a long-time
Rampage4reel: Good video! I have a 05 Mustang GT 3v and it only has one bleeder valve on
the driver side radiator hose connection on the top of the engine. Should
I do the same process where I crack that open while filling with coolant?
I have seen some where people open that after they have a air pocket or
over heating problem. What would you suggest? Thank you for making really
good videos man!
RECKLESS XAVER: I replaced the thermostat, radiator cap, and the radiator. If I used water
instead of coolant radiator, will my car overheat?
Rishi Kishundial: Hey Eric,I have ques,my Honda accord had top hose problem,where i replace
it,the engine didn't over heat.i saw the gauge rising and shut off the
engine.i replace all the houses,bt the reservoir level is slowly dropping
after a reasonable drive.,Do you think that i may have a head gasket
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.
Kevin Lay: Hello, I have had problems in the past with bleeding my coolant system on
my vw passat vr6. It doesnt have a radiator cap, it has only an expansion
tank. I ran the car with the cap off for several minutes until the fan came
on and still managed to have air in the upper radiator hose. Any tips for
bleeding this type system?
vile Franco: Would a broken pcv be a cause of the surging too?
Michael Guthrie: Hi I have a 1998 chevy cavalier just had it in the shop for a leak from
thermostat housing and needed new thermostat and switch for fan my car is
getting really warm before the fan kicks on specifically about 3/4 temp.
the mechanic said he bled the system through the switch I really don't
think this is right because there is a bleed valve on the car he has
advised a new radiator but my car didn't have this problem before shop took
it could it be a air bubble or does it have more issues really don't want
to replace a radiator if it is not nessesary
jorge rodriguez: I have a 1999 NISSAN Altima and everyday I have to put coolant in it, I
have replaced the water pump, thermostat and radiator,the fans work fine
but it still overheats sometimes, I have to put it on nuetral and pump it
so the temperature can go down to normal.. My mechanic says it is something
in the engine and it is not even worth fixing.. Pleaseeee HELP
Antoine Moulden: I have heat in my car only when i'm on the gas paddle soon as I'm off the
gas paddle it starts to blow cold air
Karl G: Thanks for all your help; I have a problem with my heater. I have a 2000
Chevy S-10 and the heater is blowing air, but no heart is coming out. I
have put a new thermostat in but didn’t help. Can you help?
David Cruz: What kind of problems could I have with air in my cooling system?
Joanne philip: awesome thanks a bunch well have to check this when i get home :) ..bcuzz
we change the rad on a 2007 Montana van still over heats ..so i will go
look at this when i get home
Robert McGuire: Does it quiet your car because mine is very loud?
TheNohar123: Do i have to do this after i flush my coolant? and when flushing do i turn
the heat on but not the fan. Thanx.
cedieboy cedie: where is the bleeder on odyssey 2006?
Frankie Soto: I had some serious heating problems and I new I had to replace the radiator
in which I did and that helped allot although I'm noticing that I never
bled the radiator and 2 it does not have thermostat installed. This issue
still persists not that is heating but that the coolant evaporates every 2
day's. So I'm going to check all the hoses see if there's a radiator valve
on my 1993 Toyota tercel and place the thermostat. PS: The water pump was
replaced recently as well. If all this won't work then I'll let you know.
Thanks for this video.
William Leland: Eric, I have a 2004 vtec still looking for bleeder valve is it near fire
wall where throttle cable attaches to throttle body? thx, Bill
Jas George: At 5:14 where you see the coolant in the funnel: Was that the last of the
air "bleeding/burping" out of the system, or did Eric just tip some more in
too "top it off"?
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!
cougar10ag: Some vehicles require the front end raised 2ft or more to completely bleed
the cooling system. Most of the time it doesn't overheat, the customer
complains of no heat through vents at idle. So check the service procedures
to see if raising the front end is required.
Stephen F: Eric u are awesome!
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
Naked Eyez: i just put a radiator in 96 dodge ram 2500 and am having the up and down
idle.. i was sure I'd bled all the air out, but since I'm have idling
issues now i wonder.. i let the air bleed out for over 30 minutes til there
were no bubbles coming out.. but i didn't know about the bleeder valve..
so, 2 questions, is there a chance it has already messed up any other of my
engine components? i haven't driven it much since i replaced the radiator,
probably 20 miles maybe slightly more.. and 2, is there any way to know
for sure that you have no air in your coolant system before you take off in
it? thanks for any replies.
LoudProudNPunk1: ...speaking of bleeder valves, I poked around in my Civic's engine looking
for one, or them, but couldn't find any. Are they hidden really well or do
some vehicles just not have them? To be a little more exact, it's a '98
Canadian made DX, with the 1.6L sohc. I think it's a 'Dy7' engine or
something like that. Whatever the model is, it's not a VTEC.
Steve King: Look good
Brian scott: hey Eric The CarGuy I have a 1994 Ford Taurus an my water is laking from
the frost plug bad do u have a vidoe how to fix it? HELP
JOE D'Auria: Thanks for a very well done video. my daughter had a frontender that
required replacing radiator and overflow tank. I'm not certain how long
the car continued to idle after the impact while pulling in air at will.
Since then, I've replaced all coolant components, but have the rhythmic
idle fluctuation from 1K to 18K. Hoping your procedure will remedy, but if
not will check for vacuum leaks and IAC service.
Marcus Stephanson: Well explained, simple, and a bonus tip with the vice grips. Thanks.
runningstrong46: Hi Eric does my Chevrolet uplander with a 3.9 have a bleeder screw?
TKD Lahmar: hi good video ... i have changed my car new coollant .. its a diahatsu YRV
1.3 turbo .. the engine 3k-vet .. when i topped the system i noticed temp
goes high when driving normal condition ..but isearched and no bleed valve
found.. ... is there a way to bleed it properly thx :)
Jimmy Flores: Why are there different colored Antifreeze's?
SilveradoDeath Dan: Did a rad flush changed thermostat. Car running slightly cooler maybe 5
degrees but now it fluctuates a little bit between 200-215. Before it was
at about 220-230. When I turn the heater or a/c on it causes the car to
idle rough then shut off. Just not sure which direction to go in. Fan
works. My next thoughts would be water pump or clogged core. Don't wanna go
pay that much if it's something easier and cheaper. Thanks
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.
nailbomb3: Eric, this SHOULD work okay on a 3800 Series GM engine right? Specifically
a 1989 Bonneville. It doesn't have a pressurized overflow tank.
italo beltran: Thanks for your info
Matt Graves: I think I found my issue. If not for the reference to idle fluctuations I
would have thought my first two attempts to bleed after radiator swap
successful and moved onto deeper darker things. Going to follow this to the
letter first. Thanks!
B Laviolette: Is there a bleeder valve on a 98 Ford Contour SVT? If so, where is it?
oliver yared: Where is the bleeder valve on a Saturn Aura EX 2008?
