Best way to Bleed cooling system air pockets
Use a cool cooling system filler tool to bleed cooling system
You can drain your cooling system by pulling the lower radiator hose. And, you can drain the block by pulling the block plugs, if your engine even has drain plugs. But regardless of whichever method you choose, you’ll still have to bleed cooling system air pockets. That’s where this UView 550000 Airlift Cooling System Leak Checker and Airlock Purge Tool Kit comes in handy.
Bleed cooling system with vacuum evacuator/filler
UView 550000 Airlift Cooling System Leak Checker and Airlock Purge Tool Kit requires compressed air to operate. Mount the adapter in the neck of the radiator. Attach
your compressed air hose and turn it on. The UView 550000 uses the compressed air to pull a vacuum on your entire cooling system. Once the gauge reaches the recommended vacuum, you close the valve and install the fill hose.
Then open the valve the cooling system vacuum will pull in the coolant. Repeat the procedure a few times and you’ll wind up with a completely full system with no air pockets.
If you’ve already filled the system, use the UView 550000 Airlift Cooling System Leak Checker and Airlock Purge Tool Kit to apply a vacuum. It’ll pull all the air pockets out.
