Customer Question

Trying to bleed a 2002 lincoln ls with the 3.9l engine. From what I read the spill free funnel method does not work on this engine, you have to use the relief valve by the degas bottle to bleed, correct? So how do you not make a mess letting coolant flow from the valve? Once you have a steady stream does that mean your system is bled of air?

Yes unfortunately this can be a messy job and yes coolent will flow out of the small bleeder by the tank. The engine needs to be filled first through the thermostat housing cap. If the seal is damaged on the cap replace. Here is a link for the procedure.
