So how did you bleed the cooling system?Sounds like you have air in the system.

I tried several ways, I took the cap the cap off and fast idled idle the motor that didn't work. Then pulled the fan switch out as a bleeder and tried that. It snowed 12 hrs yesterday and is 5 % here today so I thought I would ask for advice before playing in water again. Any thing you tell me will help. Thanks

Saturn tech9, think I solved the overheating problem. I had to let it get cold and then bleed it just did that and got heat and so far no over heat. I had done this on 05 Nissan and just had to open cap and let air out, more air with water pump I guess. Thanks for answer back.

Glad to hear it usually the hondas have a bleeder screw up top you start the engine and crack open the bleeder and wait till you get a steady flow of coolant out of it.
