it may be as simple as purging the air from coolent system is your check engine light on does it have the same power it had before you did the work


Thank you Bruce. NO the only light that comes on is the temperature one. I am really uncertain with power. So how do I bleed the system

there should be a bleeder screw near thermostat housing do you know for a fact that it is overheating or could it be in the sensor how long does it take for light to come on


About 8 minutes the lights cimes on amd cuts off the engine. All I need now are the points of bleeding the coooling system. Anyone with the picture and clear location??
