Generation III Internal Engine - more after cam install radiator ?
06-06-2005, 04:35 PM
I can let the car sit and run forever drive it forever but whenever I stop and turn the car off it start to hiss a little and pours some into the overflow tank. It seems to get better each time laster a little less each time. Is this just some air in the system that hasn't bled out yet or could it be something wrong with my head or gasket because we had to take it off bc of a lifter that fell. I replaced the gasket and followed the torque pattern. Im thinking maybe there something that is building pressure up in the system. I hope it is just some air let in there though. Any help or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks alot.

Don't worry about it, the system is just "equalizing". When you shut of the engine and the coolant stops flowing, certain ares of the engine get hotter, and the coolant levels out in the system. It will go away after a few runs.

My car seemed to do that once when I flushed out the radiator and forgot to mix the coolant 50-50 with water.

sounds like you have more water in the system than coolant. make sure you have the 50/50 mix in there.
