Heating system airlock - how to cure

11 January 2009 - 01:10 AM

Hi there..

I'll worry next why the coolant level dropped 2 litres of fluid over the last six months - the immediate concern though has to do with curing a suspected airlock preventing the heating system working. Even though I've topped up the coolant.

The 'net throws up solutions involving running the engine until hot with the coolant cap off + turning the heating dial to hot + squeezing the "top" hose repeatedly to shift the airlock

But which hose(s) do they mean? The engine coolant circuit hoses get hot but the hoses to the heating valve and beyond into the car remain cold. It's low mileage '96 1.3l model

Thanks in advance
