Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.I will do my best to assist you.
what engine do you have?
please explain your question
i would think it is getting hot because of the busted hose..you need to fix the hose,fill and bleed the system..
bleed it this way after you repair the hose
1-remove the radiator/reservoir cap when the engine is cold
2-start the engine and let idle
3-turn the heater on max
4-keep coolant on hand and add it as needed
5-spme coolant may gush out with the air
6-keep doing this until the engine is at operating tempeture and the heater is hot
7-after the coolant settles down and the engine is warm,,install the cap
This may take as long as 20-30 minutes
