How do you eliminate air lock in a car cooling system?

I have a Dodge Intrepid.

You're going to need to either disable it by removing the fuse or fuse box, or you're going to need to have some electrical board work done.

That isn't as simple as it seems. You can refill it with an auto shops exchange kit. Its best left to a pro, as sometimes these have to be converted.

To take care of this problem, you will need to bleed your cooling system; Top off the radiator, and let the car run until the thermostat opens, air should bubble up, add fluid til this stops.

This occurs when air gets trapped in a part of the engine making it hard for coolant to flow. To eliminate this the engine's cooling system needs to be bled of air when coolant is added. Top off the radiator or reservoir and let the engine run until the thermostat opens. Air should bubble out. Add fluid until it stops.

Do not attempt a cooling system bleed/refill without the fan switch working. Add anti freeze until the engine warms up change your thermostat frequently.

Bleed cooling system. Take off radiator. Let car run until thermostat opens up and you'll see it bubble up. Keep pouring until the bubble up stops.

This is an intrepid question about the elimination of an air lock in your cars' cooling system. I encountered this issue before in my own car. Do what I did, take it to a mechanic, idiot!


Answer by  Amber40 (24961)

Well you need to first make sure that you don't have a leak letting air into your system. Then you need to do a good system bleed. Making sure to fill the system to the correct level and checking to make sure it stays there. The might also me kits available to help force air out of the system.

There are airlock cavities in the system. Before charging try to boil the coolant,life of the coolant system components can be increased by airing the engine each time.
