Refilling And Bleeding The Cooling System
In this video I cover the proper procedure for refilling and purging air from the cooling system after a cooling system component replacement or a coolant change.
Forgetting to bleed the system typically results in the engine running hotter than usual (as evidenced by the dash temperature gauge) or even overheating following a repair. Overheating even once can cause serious engine damage.
The bleeding process is pretty straightforward and I'll take you through the process step by step.

Dont overpay a mechanic for this simple repair. Broke down on the side of road and using wifi. Take it out till you get home with a couple of wrenches or sockets, you can run it without it if your overheating. Comming home from a trip I was overheating do to this bad thermostat. After taking it out I drove the hour and a half home with no issue and ran my errands the next day till it was fixed. $10 and a half an hour of time!
