2003 pt cruiser: the radiator..antifreeze

Resolved Question:

Just changed the radiator in my 2003 pt cruiser today. Could not get all the antifreeze back in. Assumed there is air trapped in the system. Started engine. Coolant temp gauge does not rise at all even after a few minutes. I'm afraid of hurting the engine. What should I do.

Hello, there is an air bleed fitting below the engine cooling system pressure cap, what you'll want to do is open that and fill the cooling system until a steady stream of coolant comes out of the fitting
