How do i bleed cooling system 1996 cavalier - 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier
Fill the resovoir full of coolant then put the cap on. Start the car and let the tempture get about 160 -190 depending on your thermostat. Then proceed to turn the motor off. While the motor is off locate the bleeder valve that is loacted on a metal pipe that runs to the side of the head, Slowly turn the bleeder valve between 3/4 to a full rotation then begin to let the system bleed until there is a steady stream of coolant exiting the valve. Start the vehicle again and repeat till resovoir is full and there is absolutley no air in the system. Failure to do so will result in vapor lock and ultimatley coolant system failure
On the front of engine running below the valve cover there is a coolant tube that has an 7 or 8mm bolt on it, with engine off and cool open bleeder valve, add coolant till no more bubbles come out of bleeder close bleed, top of resivor replace cap and your done.
