I purchased a new mishimoto radiator after my stock one cracked, and after replacing I went ahead and did the DIY on how to do a flush that i found on here. Everything went perfect and I was on my way to my gf's house. The next day I was on the interstate on my way home and i notice my temp gauge goes up from the usual 3 bars to 4 bars...then to 5 bars! I shut the car off immediately, pulled over and looked under the hood to find radiator fluid sprayed everywhere...i go to the closest auto parts and buy some 50/50 and drive home. *Note when i turned the heater on it was NOT blowing hot.
After hours and hours of researching i narrow it down to 3 possible problems.
1) I have air trapped in the system that isnt getting pushed out.
2) My thermostat is bad
3) I have a bad head gasket
Obviously im going to start with the cheapest option that makes the most sense. The only problem is I couldnt find a DIY on burping the S2k. Apparently Xviper had a write up but it mysteriously disappeared, so i followed the instructions provided by Billman250 and did my own basic write up.
Where have the DIY instructions gone. I need to bleed my system as well but this post is blank?
follow billmans instructions. They are posted all over the place.
Idle the car till it gets to 3 bars for AP1, wait 1 minute after that, shut the car off.
Then open and close the bleeder valve next to the fuel rail.
do it a couple times and you should be good to go.
