Notes

  2. Start the engine and allow to idle. While engine is idling, feel for hot air at A/C vents.

  • Start engine and allow to idle until normal operating temperature is reached. Hot air should discharge from A/C vents. The engine coolant temperature gauge should maintain a stabilized reading in the middle of the NORMAL range and the upper radiator hose should feel hot to the touch. CAUTION : If air discharge remains cool and engine coolant temperature gauge does not move, engine coolant level is low in engine and must be filled. Stop engine, allow to cool and fill cooling system.
  • Shut the engine off and allow to cool.
  • Check the engine for coolant leaks.
  • Check the engine coolant level in degas bottle and fill as necessary.

    What Customers are Saying:

    AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

    Rich DUSA

    Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

    MollyUSA

    I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

    Jason V.Kirkland, WA

    I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

    BRNew Jersey

    I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
