Did this video help you?

Joseph Ragland: Hey my name is joseph my dad bought me a car 6 months before he passed away and i been doing everything i can to hang on to it and its not running good right now is there anyway that you can help me

William Irizarry: Extremely helpful! After engine overhaul on 03 Honda Accord, 3.0 V6, 6 speed coupe, car overheated fast, swollen radiator hoses, etc. Mechanic said gasket leak. I am now thinking system was not bled properly! This car has the bleed valve on the rear of the vehicle, correct?

Familia Sanchez HVAC: Do Chevy S10's have bleeder valves?

Ray Brensike: On my motorcycle, if you squeeze the radiator hose as you fill, (keep squeezing and releasing) this will burp the system and you will be able to fill it without air pockets. On that bike it works. Might work on cars, I don't know. I just drive mine, and the next day when it's cool, top it off. However with the motorcycle, adding any large amounts of coolant means having to partially remove the gas tank to get access. BIG WARNING HERE: Never do anything when the motor is running. Turn the motor off. I just heard a story about a guy who lost his finger between the v-belt and pulley. Not worth it. My motorcycle will boil just plain water out before the fan turns on. This left me thinking I had a sensor / fan switch problem when I was running it with just water to flush it out, but with 50 /50 antifreeze, the fan came on before it boiled. Still, I loose a bit of coolant because the expansion tank seems too small. This thing seems to run so hot before the fan comes on, but once the fan is on, it will keep the thing from overheating. It's a borderline kind of deal. Not sure what to do, maybe put on an additional expansion tank or something. It's just a bit of fluid, but it's annoying, and I shouldn't be letting it do that.

blaze2051: ERIC, I have a k24a2 motor, and i been having overheating issues, i spent 45-50 minutes bleeding the air out of the system with the car jacked up to make it little ezer. The car temps gauge is little below half way mark thats usually where its at all the time, but when i use my obd2 scan tools its shows the temps at 210 at idle and 180 on the hwy. is idle temp too high? i feel i have a flow issue cause i cant see flowing coolant with the rad cap off nor can i feel pulses when i squeeze the top rad hose

Gord Baker: Excellent insight to this problem. The fill must be higher than the rest of the engine. Waterpumps will not pump air.

darrinhayward: Just changed my upper and lower radiator hoses on my 1998 Honda Accord. Followed these instructions and got what I thought was all the air out. However, when my car is idling and I rev the engine up to 2000 rpms and then let off the gas the car dies. I'm only having slight hesitations when accelerating when driving. Do you think this is an issue with the cooling system or something else? Thanks for your videos. I'm a huge fan

L Now: Hello.. New subscriber here .. I have a Question Someone told me to take out the thermostat when I bleed out the cooling system? Will that do any damage My car in any way?thanks for taking your time and reading this.

Bonita Magallanes: ur car looks like a 96 honda accord

Lito: hi Eric , what if your car or truck has no bleeder valve...my 4cyl accord had one, but not my v6...pain in the ass to bleed at least not as simple..my v8 tundra 2008 5.7 liter doesn't either...I do bleed them but is there any trick to this make it easier....thank u eric

Louie Saltos: Hi Eric. Do you think a leaking of oil from valve cover and small leak of antifreeze coolant from oil cooler hose pipe assembly can overheat an engine? My 350 Z successfully tested negative on the combustion radiator test kit. In the next few days I will changing the intake plenum and valve covers. There s a questionable low oil pressure. Changed the oil temp sensor as well the water pump , thermostat , radiator and fan assembly as well as fan relays. Also changed the pcv valve. If the car continues to overheat after all I'm about to do I don"t where to blame it. I also flushed the heater core and I'm getting heat. Both fan work including the ac. Also placed a new gasket behind the oil cooler and the system was burp for air in the coolant system. The car engine run at idle for one hour with no overheating symptoms but when I drove it soon after the temp gauge went up so I stopped the car. Thanks.

Zelus Brand: Don't buy the funnel at oreilys... it's freaking garbage

Steven Grandison: might be a bit off topic Eric but quick question I need to get my camshaft pulley off is there any specific tool I can use so I don't mess up timing trying to get it off of my TL

Joshua Roa: what if you have coolant in there already?

Melissa Horne: I have a 1996 maxima, the top radiator hose is getting hot, but the lower hose was not. I have changed the thermostat, and now the lower hose gets hot at the thermostat but not at the bottom of the radiator. The guage is still showing it running hot. Could it be air in the system or maybe the water pump? The water pump was replaced about 2 years ago, but it was leaking then and dripping down on the compressor, which it is not now. The coolant is not low and the radiator cap is getting hot as well. Any help would be great.

Brendan West: Just wanted to thank you for all the work you put into these videos. You have saved me lots of money and countless headaches.

DrE38: This crap did not help me. Dang BMWs can only be filled by the reservoir.

C6Roadster: Subbed👍

FLYING NIMBUS: this video helped me out alot thanks
