    Radiator cap question

    How do you remove the radiator cap on a 98 Z/28? Also- where is the sensor for coolant level? Last- how do I make sure there is no air in the system after flushing it and refilling with dex cool?

    Thanks in advance.

    Ensure the engine is cool and press down and rotate counterclockwise, to "burp" the system, start the car with the rad cap off and allow it to cycle and get to Op Temps and top off fluid. Coolant level sensor is on the passenger side of the radiator, the only sensor on there.

    Thanks for the reply! I found out- My Rad cap is a bit different-you turn counterclock without pushing till it stops-then continue turning counterclock while pushing down- I never had a cap like this before-all my others came off like you said.

    Thanks for the sensor/burp info-very helpful.
