    Antifreeze and air bleeds

    I did a search and did not find the answer.

    I've got a 2002 Camaro SS. I need to replace the antifreeze. Somewhere I read that there are air bleeds. I did a search and found a reference to air bleeds on the thermostat and hoses. I checked my car and I didn't see anything that looked like an air bleed.

    Now, with that said, I have no idea what an air bleed looks like. But if someone could tell me what they look like (and if they are in some other location), I would be mucho appreciative. I guess I'll just burp the system, but I would still like to know where those air bleeds are located.

    Thanks.

    The air bleeds you refer to were an LT1 deal from 92-97.

    To my knowledge it was eliminated on the LSx cars.

    just take the cap off the radiator and bring the car up to temp and let the coolant circulate a bit....that'll purge all the air.
