Mk5/6 1.6 Zetec Engine - System Bleed


Recommended Posts

New to these cars/engines, have just replaced a rad hose for a mate.


However, when filling up the system with water/coolant I couldn't find the bleed valves.....whereabouts are they ?


I looked everywhere and couldn't find anything


Any help appreciated



There aren't any - just take it for a short drive and check levels

Start the engine, leave the expansion cap off..


Turn the heaters on full ( hot )


Let it come to temprature ( needle between the 'R' and 'M' of Normal )


If you have any air trapped in the system, the heat of the water will make the air rise to the top and out of the open expansion chamber..



Hope this helps.
