    How to install coolant Air bleeder in 2002 Chrysler Sebring

  • Anonymous Mar 20, 2014

    removed coolant air bleeder because it was leaking and discovered that a piece of iron was between original coolant air bleeder and aluminum engine block. the iron rusted away but left a pitted area on the block and cracked the original coolant air bleeder. Is this something that happens all the time with dodge products. Would not buy any dodge vehicle because of poor workmanship and equally poor material used in construction. Any recourse from dodge for not assembling the parts with clean surfaces.

If you need to do this because the top came off, I found it to be a big job on the 2.7L V6. I initially tried to bond the top back on with no success.

To replace it, you have to remove both the upper and lower intake plenum. This device has the upper radiator hose connected in front, and the tube which runs back below the intake plenum connects to a heater hose at the rear. The hose clamp on the rear connection is very hard to get to. Unless you have a lot of mechanical experience, and a lot of patience, you may want to pay someone to do this for you. The price on the part from the dealer was about $110, as I remember.

Sounds like you make have another leak somewhere allowing air to enter into the system. I would recommend doing a coolant system pressure test. This will tell you if there is a leak somewhere else.

Opened bleeder valve on charger 2.7. Only vapor comes out. Bad pump or thermostat?

Continue to add water until the vapor "lock" is purged of all air. All coolant bleeders are supposed to reside higher than the radiator/coolant filling area...the coolant should flow out of the bleeder valve before tightening the bleeder shut.

Toyota Corrolla 1995. The heater does not work, I replaced the thermostat and have put a lot of antifreeze.

bleed cooling system, probably there is air trapped in the heater core preventing warm coolant to circulate into the heater core. try this
1 open radiator cap fill coolant and put heater in hi heat
2 start engine and wait until you see the coolant start to circulate
3 squeeze hose several times watching if coolant volume decrease
4 add more coolant and repeat 3 until coolant volume stays same or start overflowing.
5 check if heater giving off warm air or repeat 3 and 4 until warm air blows on heater.
or find the coolant bleeder screw, do 1 and 2
open bleeder screw until coolant come out, do this several times until no air comes out when opening bleeder screw, fill coolant in radiator.

No heat changed thermostat flushed engine new coolant

did you release air from cooling system when replacing coolant!! if air is trapped in system it will not heat up proper. turn fan on high heat locate bleeder for cooling system, open bleeder with car running. if there is any air in system you will see it come out of bleeder. keep checking for heat. when you get heat bring coolant to proper level. leave top off of coolant recovery tank while bleeding system. put cap back on when done.

I used the bleeder screw to release the air pocket on my 2002 PT Cruiser but the air pocket keeps forming again.

fill coolant with bleeder open until the coolant comes out of the bleeder. if it still over heat and has air in the system replace the head gasket. hope this helps

Cant find bleeder valve foe coolant system on 96

dr_greg is incorect. The bleeder valve is on the thermastat housing near the intake manifold. Follow the hose from the top of the radiator to the the engine. Look for something that looks like a 12mm head nut with a metal nipple comming through it. If you change your coolant but do not open this valve untill coolant flows from it you may cause an air pocket to remain in your engine, possibly causing your car to over heat.

Water pump problem?

You need to make sure you don’t have an air lock. Find the bleeder valve for the coolant system and release the air. If you can’t find the bleeder, find the highest hose for the coolant system and make sure coolant is flowing through it.
