Find the top end of the radiator drain valve or a valve for venting.
Put a bucket under the battery in order to avoid spilling of water, otherwise you can not just create a pool, but also flood the neighbors if the airlock will need to drain the water.
Turn the valve stem key a quarter turn.The key is to not remove the valve.Of course, if you have a valve on the side of the battery, get rid of the air pockets will be easier.
Wait until the end of the hiss, nor will the first drops of water and close the valve.
Do not turn the key over the valve a quarter turn in an attempt to accelerate the release of air from the radiator!This acceleration procedures bleed air will cause a strong flow of water.Turn the key slowly.So you will be easier to monit
or the implementation of key turn.
somewhat different is the case in the formation of air pockets in the aluminum radiator.The cause of the airlock can be gassing, which occurs due to the fact that the quality of the coolant is poor.In other words, there is a "conflict" between the aluminum radiator and coolant.Fight with air plugs formed in the aluminum radiators can bleed through regular air or by replacing the use of new radiators with an internal anti-corrosion coating.Modern radiators are like multi-processing, enhancing their anti-corrosive properties.Such processing includes the following stages: thorough cleaning of the external and internal surfaces of the radiator, deoxidation, zirconium processing solution and reusable painting.These ultra-secure from the corrosive effects of the radiators can be installed even in areas with higher rates of humidity, such as in swimming pools.
