View Full Version : Coolant Problem

Alright here's what is happening. Car all back together. Fill it up with coolant. Start it. Let it run a bit. Go back to fill up more of the coolant. But it hasn't gone down. I open the valve on the bottom of the radiator, and nothing comes out. It seems to be getting really hot so I think I may have a back up somewhere. Any suggestions????

sounds like an airlock. did it run long enough to open the tstat?
