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.

eddie bogert: if you were to start up your car with radiator cap removed and coolant was to real soon after start to gush out of the top of the radiator- could that POSSIBLY be a result of air in the cooling system- this is happening to me just recently replaced a lower air intake gasket and this is one of the problems I am having along with possible vacuum leak, Thanks

TheYzeman: I flushed the radiator and engine block with a hose (removed the thermostat to back flush) and installed a new thermostat. I followed this procedure to the letter. I have just one question. Why did my Chevy Lumina fill up at only 6 quarts of coolant/water when the manual says - capacity 11.6 qts?

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

Magic Merch: I done this. My fan takes ages to come on. Coolant started spraying out like 10 metres in the air, i lost all my coolant and i couldnt find the cap. It was a big disaster. What did i do wrong?

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. 

Steven Kayser: i just conducted this procedure on my 2003 jeep cherokee and kept it idling a bit too long and the coolant erupted all over my engine. just a heads up for everyone. something to look out for. keep up the great work eric and stay dirty!!

orlando lopez: hey ericthecarguy having a problem with my 93 toyota camry 4cyl it overheats and fan doesnt turn on at the right time...fan starts kicking in when its on hot but only cools it until it goes down a little than goes back up to hot....checked for any leaks doesnt have any and relays look to me to be find hasnt lost any voltage...so im a lil lost can you help please

crackermoves: Hey Eric Great Video.. Is there any drawbacks to using a 7lb radiator cap instead of a 16?? I have a small coolant leak and it makes it leak less for the time being because the coolant pressure doesn't build up as much pressure in the radiator .. Thanks :-)

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. Would this cause any problem??? or I should retapp a new barb fittings so i can rejoin the overflow line back to the reserviour. Thanks

Shadi Gif: i lost my R33 because i didn't Bleed the freaking Cooling System properly. freaking stupid Nissan engineers!

Jerry Parker: Eric, great video. I have a coolant system problem that I am trying to diagnose. Just replaced the radiator. At first everything seem ok, but I noticed small bubbles going into the reservoir while the engine is running. The reservoir fills until it overflows the vent pipe. Is this symptoms of an airlock or is it a head gasket? Thanks

Roger Clark: Hello Eric. I have a 2006 Chevrolet Equinox and have been having a really hard time getting the 3.4 liter engine to burp. It has one bleeder screw and i was wondering if the lisle tool will work on the Equinox pressurized surge tank? Thanks for any help on this issue.

Michael Garboski: at 5:10, you say that you're going to top it off. When do you know to stop adding coolant to the radiator cap?

Clint Lambert: Yep good video, do all car's have a bleeder screw? I have a 1997 land rover discovery 3.9 and my car manual is gone so?

WOG13B: Your a freaken weird cunt... I love it. Cheers for the help.

Charles A: 97 Honda Civic Dx doesn't have a bleeder valve.. 

Davienne Gordon-Ememodo: I have a 99 Volvo V70 GLT. I replaced the ETC sensor because it coded on emmissions check and the fan was running all the time. It is working properly now. Also replaced the thermostat, thought it would be wise to do so. It's driving me crazy purging the coolant out the overflow when it reaches temperature. I have tried everything found online to get the air out of the system, even took it to a specialty shop. They pressure checked it, it was fine, even checked for blown head gasket, none. I have purchased 2 thermostats, though they look the same, and both operate the same. The one I removed has one of the little toggle pins in it, but the new ones don't. I did see that you recommend not turning the fan on when trying to bleed the air. If a Volvo has a bleeder valve I wouldn't know where to find it, but nothing online shows that it does. I literally have gone through 5 gallons of coolant and lots of water, as I got tired of loosing the coolant, but this has me baffled. It was so bad today I kept stopping to put let it cool and put more fluid in, just wanted to get home and not drive it. Am supposed totake it back to shop on Monday. The radiator was replaced a year and a half ago, and it finally bled. I had no problems prior to replacing these parts. Any ideas???

Shamarra Williams: My heat is blowing luke warm so i put water in the coolant resv tank. Then the next day omw to work the temperature guage started dropping when I had the heat on full blast.. Could this possible be air in my cooling system causing this issue? Please help

Jeremiah Auble: Great videos - about to go try this... Perhaps it's a dumb question, but what was that long socket tool that you use on the bleeder valve? 

Harrison Spikes: i have a 1991 toyota tacoma and it overheated well i poured cold water into it while it was hot and it made three loud pops, what was that the cause of???

David Erickson: hey im not quite sure where to find the bleed screw on my 01 honda civic? and did u drain all the coolant out first? give it allll new?

Rafael Leyva: Tanks very helpful! !! 

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.

Jorge Henriquez: How can I remove my radiator on my Chrysler 300 2006

SergReturnsV1: i have one problem my fan is connected to the battery for some bad connections do i just keep going with the procedures?

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. 

jazzmaster1948: How do you bleed a 2002 Dodge durango i am having so many problems with it over heating. i changed the thermostat clutch fan the rad the cap and it gets hot and my spark plugs are show white some one said it could be the fuel pump and reglater its running to lean or to rich. can you help

Patrick Johnston: 1987 honda accord lxi ( idle nightmare ) so many vacum lines. I'm going to try this

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. 

Austin B: We've had two Honda Accords (96 &97) and the temperature knobs always broke!

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
