I know I'm supposed to unscrew the plastic screw near the radiator cap and when the engine warms up, it should release all the extra air from the engine.
Well, after the engine warmed, vapor was being released from the little hole as supposed to. But suddenly the engine started over-heating and I had to turn it off. This is the second time it happens. The first time, I brought a mechanic to do it and all he did was take out the screw and add coolant until it shoots out from the hole. I did the same thing but still over-heating. Any advice?
i had same problem these engines can be a bit of a bitch to bleed you get air locks in the engine block try following witch worked for me first of all jack up car at front as high as poss remove the radiator top hose and fill it with water with engine ticking over keep filling till it does not take any more recconect and reblead with engine running till you get a steady stream of water out of plastic bleed screw then retighten you may have to do this more than once to get rid of air locks be careful not to let water temp go into red as can blow head gasket regards david in u.k
