3.5 Bleed procedure:
1-jack up front of car
2-loosen the heater outlet hose. ( You will appreciate the inconsideration of engineers on this)
3-Place 5/16 clear vinyl hose on bleeder on thermostat housing, opened bleeder screw, run hose to jug on floor.
4-Using a pressure tester, pump pressure and watch hose. When coolant flows without bubbles, close bleeder. Wait a few minutes and repeat until hose is clear consistently.
5-Listen for air escaping from heater hose. When the air stops and coolant starts running, replace heater hose clamp.
6- NEVER let coolant tank run out of coolant.
7- Start car and aain with pressureon system, continue to open bleeder screw, let run until clear, close again, open again, as much as needed until you get no air bubbles.
8-When the car is close to fan operation temp (210 F?) Don t open bleeder.
9- open bleeder again just after fan shuts off.
