Phil manwarren: hey eric how do i bleed my coolant on my 2000 blazer
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???
rohan samson: Hi Eric, I have a Honda Accord Lx 2001 automatic 4 cylinder, my first gear
or second when shifting jumps when I come to a stop, after that the gear
shifting is smooth it does that only when I am in traffic or at a stop sign.
I saw your video and changed the coolant. But I don't have the funnel that
you had in the video.
I also have changed the transmission oil and all the mountings.
Please let me know if I need to check or change anything.
Greatly appreciated your help, and thank you for all the time and
information you give, it's a blessing.
Johnathon Martinez: +EricTheCarGuy I have a 1997 honda accord and ig recently started over
heating on me. By the time I got home it was all the way to the red.
Leaving it in my driveway without driving it for about 9 plus hours I went
to go start it and it shot right back up showing it was over heating again.
My question is what could be the problem? I was thinking a thermostat
change and do a flush in the radiator. Any suggestions would be helpful.
Lola Run: Hello Eric! Please helllp me. I have a 97 vw jetta and it does not have
access to the radiator. So it must be filled through the overflow. Can I
use this process with the overflow? Also do u suggest parking the car on an
incline to help with burping? Thanks
666dynomax: got a question for ya... got an 04 pathfinder. -12 deg c out tonight,
started the truck, and in under 1 minute, my lower and upper rad hose
warmed to about +12 deg Celcius. (checked with infrared thermometer). I
have long warm up times, but the gauge seems to always run just a little
shy of midway on the dash after its warmed up, but on colder days it seems
hard to heat the cabin up much, and warmup times are quite long... like
over 10 minutes idling. Would this mean the thermostat might be partially
stuck open? Never had overheating issues summer or winter. Thanks again.
Ya helped me outta 2 jams with my accord already, hoping for a 3rd on the
Brian Gimbert: Thanks for making these videos, this worked perfectly and my heat is now
blowing as warm as the day I bought the car.
Nathaniel Norris: Eric, You are alright with me. Thanks and great videos.
Brandon Smisek: I have bleed the cooling system, replaced the water pump, thermostat,
radiator, timing belt, and did a head gasket test. all looks good and i
even wired the fan to run all the time. the car still over heats, unless
i'm driving in bumper to bumper traffic. 15 mph the car is fine. its a 1986
civic wagovan with less then 100k original miles. Do you have any ideas ???
Mitch Wirtz: What if the reserve tank is already full?
Lisa Payne: I am a female and do most of the work on my car myself, been doing it for
years. Anyway, my problem is, its my first time living in the snow and I
guess I did not have any anti-freeze in my car and the lines leading to the
overflow tank have froze and the car overheated. There is a serious leak
behind the motor, but not against the firewall and car still overheats.
Could this be a freeze plug issue? Engine was surging, overheated, cooled
off, ran fine about 2 blocks and it was obvious there was no fluid going
through cooling system....HELP!!!! need to fix a.s.a.p. go to go to work....
Wolf Lovel: what if my fan only has 1-4 ? and no off? its a 2001 ford victoria police
car that was "retired"
johnathan duaz: Should of done this video using a 86 mr2
Michael Jervinsky: Hello, that was very helpful. I have a question for you please. Just
purchased a 1998 Nissan Altima GXE. I believe the engine thermostat does it
work, even when driving for over 15 mins the needle still stands at COLD.
The heater blower works but there is no hot air coming out. Do I need to
replace the thermostat and bleed my coolant system system? Any and all
input is appreciated. Thank you.
ky09: Changed my lower radiator hose. Drove it to work fine and the next day it
started to overheat and I couldn't get any heat. I filled the radiator back
up after work and let it run. The temp needle moved to its normal spot in
between the 1/4 and 1/2 mark. I let the car run for 20min with the cap off
and thought I was good but still no heat inside and the car does not
overheat anymore. I don't know what else to do? Any suggestions?
Rayburn Griffith: Eric, do you have any tips on installing a block heater in a 2003 Buick
3.1 L engine?
Ruben Gomez: I have a heater problem the core has been flushed twice, have had heat for
a couple of days on each flush,but then same issue has returned.. only
blows cold air and no heat.. By the way its a singe core heating system on
a 94 Jeep GC
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?
gary conley: what do you do with a car that doesn't have a radiator cap?? i have a 2003
chevy malibu and am going to be replacing the coolant reservoir tank but am
not sure how to bleed the system. i like that funnel but i don't have a
radiator cap though.
buffingmetal: my car is a fiat 500 1.1 lt engine no air con, anyway its not heating the
car, it has a coolant tank but no radiator cap on the rad, it has two bleed
screws one for the heater and one for the rad. I use the car for going to
work, also there is no bubbles in the system. What do you think might be
Twiztidguy: anyone know where the bleeder is on a 94 f150 4.9 Liter?
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
d shook: How would u do this I'f ur vehicle don't have the bleeder value or you

NoYa Muzik: can do that on a lincoln town
mvortex1: Thanks, I now have heat but I cant see a dam thing going down the road with
the hood open like that...
Daniel Turnbow: Eric my 2000 civic ex has no bleeder bolt! How do I purge air out? Stay

I like your channel but this was useless.
Ray Lindert: Awesome video. Solved my issue perfectly
mietekkln: That is so helpful ! I had replaced water pump & timing belt about 3 weeks
ago and since that time i have problem with heating... I"m gonna try ur
method tomorrow and I'm 99% that this is it :))
AARON JOHNSON: I used an air lift tool on my Honda do I still need to bleed the system ?
I replaced the thermostat with the 190 one...
I have a hunting idle but not all the time.... it runs rough until it
gets around 1000rpm.... I replace the cap wire rotor and plugs...and still
the same issue..

VideoGamePlayer12: What if I have two bleeder screws? Open them both? (GM 3100 SFI V6)
Jack Myers: Eric, HELP, please,,, ok 2000, G M 3400, overheating & no heat, seems like
the water is not moving out of the radiator, changed the thermostat,
flushed the radiator, checked the water pump looked good, does not smoke,
no oil in the water, nice & clean, when it gets hot the right radiator hose
is hot & the rad. cap & left hose is cold, & no heat from the heater, but
it looks like they omitted the heater core, will check on that, but any
info you can give will be great, thanks, Jack
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
Brandon Smisek: Bravo !!! I think this will fix my problem. Thank You Sir.
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
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
Shadi Gif: i lost my R33 because i didn't Bleed the freaking Cooling System properly.
freaking stupid Nissan engineers!
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

Kenny Tong: What tool did you use to open the bleeder valve?
Mike Marino: Eric thanks for the video. I have this problem on my Daughters Nissan
Altima 2003 4 cylinders. going to try this method today. Thank you
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 :-)
mscutiebum Followme: I have an air lock in my 98 Cadillac Eldorado would your video be the same
for this car ?

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
