How do u get the air out of the cooling system for a VS V8?? Is there an air bleeder near the thermostat housing? Or is there something else?
Also, when putting in coolant, are u meant to have the heater (i.e have the fan switched to hot setting) on and car running when replacing coolant? My aircond is not working at present as the gas has been extracted due to repairs. I need to re-gas, but that will happen in next 2-3 wks. Hope this does not complicate the bleeding process.
I'm changing coolant today and would like to have this info ASAP pls.
if you squeeze and relese the top radiator hose a few time it gets rid of the air... top your coolent up do that squeeze thing the run the car and fill up the rest, it wont be much,
Going where no late model stato/caprice has gone before.... GAME ON!!
to get the air out you run the car with the radiator cap off and heater turned on (having no gas has nothing to do with the heater, thats only for cold air).
you'll probably notice the coolant inside the radiator bubbling with the cap off, thats the air escaping.
once you done that, check you dont need to top up the coolant anymore and your right to go.
