burping coolant system
Posted 28 June 2010 - 07:39 PM
Working on refilling/burping 1993 Legacy 2.2L 110K miles after replacing water pump, timing belt, and thermostat to correct overheating problem. The water pump would hardly turn and the timing belt was apparently just rubbing on the pump drive "pulley". I don't see any water or white smoke coming out the tail pipe. I refilled through the radiator cap (didn't know about the bleeder on the top right side of the radiator. The temperature still goes above normal. The upper radiator hose gets hot but the lower hose stays cool. I now have it up on ramps as suggested in many posts, but unsure best way to burp it. How should I burp it? Should I drain it and refill through the upper hose?
Thanks in advance.
