Biting my tongue here, he didn't offer to do it? or tell you how to do it?


What did you do to cause air in the cooling system?

i change two pistons


To bleed you leave the radiator cap off during warm-up to operating temp. When the coolant level drops in the radiator you keep adding coolant until full. Coolant may spill out the radiator, that would be the air pushing threw. Also some systems are hard to bleed, so shops have a tool they use for bleeding cooling systems.

Pontiac does, at the thermostat housing, could be others but I don't know...
