I just replaced a bad water pump on my 2009 Ford Fusion 2.3

Customer Question

I just replaced a bad water pump on my 2009 Ford Fusion 2.3 liter. I had zero temp or coolant issues until now. I'm almost certain I have an airlock in the coolant system, due to the radical movements of my temp gage and the lack of pressure to my upper and lower radiator hoses.
I cannot seem to locate any advice on line that would help me bleed the air from the system. Ive had this issue on another vehicle but it was equipped with a valve that would be used to vent the air from the system.
Can you please offer any assistance with this particular year 2.3L ?

HI, Ok, the preferred method is with a pressure bleeder, which you can usually rent from Autozone or Advanced Auto Parts. There is a way to bleed it without one, which I have uploaded and attached at the bottom of the answer page here. It is specifically for your vehicle. There should be a bleeder on yours, which is shown in the attached directions Please remember to rate service using the rating page so that I may receive credit. Thanks
