Default "Burping" Your Cooling System

Click the image to open in full size.
This procedure takes about 20 minutes and can keep you from making a simple thing complicated. This part is called a no-spill funnel and eliminates the need for burping when you follow the right fill procedures. Any tech worth his salt will tell you to use one.

With the engine cold...

1.) Insert the no spill funnel into the radiator cap opening, NOT THE RESERVOIR.

2.) Fill your coolant system with 50/50 water/coolant up to the BOTTOM of the no spill funnel.

3.) Turn your engine on and let it warm up.

4.) You'll see the coolant start to rise in a few minutes to the point where it almost overflows, but it shouldn't (much, if at all) , also turn the heater on , NO A/C and let it blow hot air

5.) The coolant level drops when the thermostat opens, and fans will kick on

6.) Pour in a little more coolant after the level drops, again to the bottom of the no-spill funnel. You now have coolant circulating in the motor AND the radiator. That doesn't happen until the coolant level rises and falls in the no spill funnel.

7.) give the car some throttle. This speeds up the water pump impeller a bit and chases out the last of the bubbles. You may have to do this a couple of times. Don't get impatient and cap it with little bubbles. Wait a bit while the car runs and they'll all dissipate.

8.) When you see the coolant churning and not bubbling, remove the no-spill funnel and put on your radiator cap. You might spill an ounce or two on the ground when this is done correctly.

*******DO NOT TURN THE CAR OFF BEFORE FINISHING THIS PROCEDURE. YOU WILL GET SCALDED!!!!********


This should be done once a year , esp for you guys up North that needs the Heater during Winter.

Just to add to this, when you're done....squeeze the upper coolant hose (with a rag, since it'll be hot) and plug the funnel with the T handle. Release the hose, then pull the funnel out. This will pull coolant down below the top where the cap goes and not cause you to spill any.

Also I agree is nismo1o1, as a tech. This great after you have opened the cooling system...aka replacing the radiator. Usually go for $20-30.
