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?

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.... Thank you...

Wolf Lovel: what if my fan only has 1-4 ? and no off? its a 2001 ford victoria police car that was "retired"

d shook: How would u do this I'f ur vehicle don't have the bleeder value or you can't find it. It is a 2002 dodge ram 1500 with 5.9 

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. 

Twiztidguy: anyone know where the bleeder is on a 94 f150 4.9 Liter?

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

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 problem

Daniel Turnbow: Eric my 2000 civic ex has no bleeder bolt! How do I purge air out? Stay dirty brother

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 :))

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?

Krankie V: These kinds of problems are why I like to use a vacuum fill tool :)

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

Major Worries: ABSOLUTELY NO MENTION OF CARS WITH ELECTRONIC CONTROLS SYSTEMS...THIS VIDEO WAS USELESS ...PLEASE ADVISE SETTINGS

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.. 

weeral1: Should have named it "how to..... for a HONDA" I like your channel but this was useless.

VideoGamePlayer12: What if I have two bleeder screws? Open them both? (GM 3100 SFI V6)

jesse gibson: Did this on my 93 chevy K1500 and i ended up with a massive boiling coolant geyser, and the temp shot into the red... Any suggestions as to what happened?

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

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???

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. 

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

Kenny Tong: What tool did you use to open the bleeder valve?

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!

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.

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

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 :-)

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

CarnivorousManimal: Eric, Can I perform this procedure with a radiator full of coolant?

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

Gary Landmesser: does a 02 CRV have that bleeder screw?

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.

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?

Jason Justice: Anyone know if the 2003 Honda Pilot has a bleeder screw? I can't find any diagrams showing one. I am assuming I could repeat the steps Eric showed in the video minus loosening the bleeder screw to "burp" the coolant system?
