Hi everyone. My car is a v8 diablo replica and yesterday it overheated due to water pump being disconnected due to wire being pulled from the fuse box.
My cooling set up is one 4 core radiator with a fan in the front and 2 four core radiators in the rear with 2 fans.
Yesterday my car overheated and started leaking coolant from some hoses, fans wouldn't turn on and I initially though i had electrical problem but it turned out the water was not flowing thru the system so the temperature in the rear never got high enough for the fans to kick in(has thermostat with sensor on it).
After I reconnected the water pump everything went back to normal I drove the car for a little , temp at 180, fans turned on after a while and turned off, all ok. But then it started overheating again. My friend thinks it created air pocket due to overheating yesterday and needs to be burped. He said I need to raise the front of the car and keep filling running the car like that until all air is bled out. Should I raise the front or rear, what is the easiest way to do it, my car has electric water pump, can i bleed it without turning the car on? there is radiator filler cap in the rear engine compartment. Any help is appreciated!
