Did this video help you?

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 engine. 

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 subscriber. 

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 problem

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 insights.

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?
