The art of cooling system bleeding!
Anytime you have air trapped in a vehicles cooling system, you have a recipe for disaster. The air gets trapped in the cooling ports of the engine and heads causing the Thermostat to shut and the cooling system to stop circulating. Once this happens it is extremely difficult to bleed the trapped air from the system. Most ( But not all ) cars have a bleeder valve(s) located in the intake manifold . The problem is the intake manifold is too low and it is almost impossible to bleed the system from this point! The 3.1 and 3.4 GM V6 engine is a prime example of a vehicle that is a nightmare to bleed because the location of the bleeder valves. Also the valves corrode over ti8me and when you attempt to open them they break off, causing a whole new problem.
The trick is to locate the bleeder at the highest point in the cooling system! With the Easy bleeder you can locate the bleeder valve in the heater core line high on the firewall. Allowing the rising air a way to escape.
