How to get a air bubble out of a 240sx "sticky"

i get a ton of calls on this subject matter so here is the quick and eazy fix.

wait till engine is cool first
take a jack lift the front slightly.
take radiator cap out.
take bleed screw off
take a 2 liter pepsi bottle cut it in half
take some black electrical tape and wrap the bottle neck a little
flip it around and place the bottle neck were the radiator cap was at.
have somebody start the car
turn on the heater
now start filling it with coolant
close bleed screw after you get a nice even stream of coolant
add antifreeze until you over fill the rad by a quart
let the engine run after 3 minutes the thermostat will open and suck in the exess antifreeze
fill it again but with about a half of quart.
let it run until no more bubbles come out.
replace cap and enjoy

if problem continues and its a single cam. there is a good chance that the timing chain rubbed up against the timing cover. which will cut a hole into the water outlet.

it take alot for a dual cam to do this.

Haha will, you make it so hard!


Ace Trucking Barnyard Special:

1. Fill the radiator up to top
2. Put hand over the fill
3. Squeeze the upper radiator hose a few times (5-10) This draws water into the motor.

Repeat until it no longer sucks in. Bingo.

(but your write up is sexy compared to my redneck kill em all method)

Thank God I have this 240SX training. Never have I hated a cooling system sooo much. Had to do this on my mom's Camry a few weeks ago. Her top hose toer straight down the middle on Christmas day. Luckily with these tricks I was able to fix it, quick.
