|I have a chevy suburban. It is leaking on left side facing forward. I understand it is
caused by an intake valve. Never knew the cooling system had an intake valve.
What must I do????

|Depending on the engine size, it can be
difficult. On the 3400 there is a bleeder screw

|If the heater is blowing cold air, and coolant is
leaking past the cap, then the engine is
overheating. The pressure is getting too high
for the cap to contain. Check for leaks, or a
possible head gasket problem.

driving it other than that it can idle for hours and not even register at half on temp gage. I have
went through 2 reservoirs already because it has gotten so hot it has worn a whole in it because of
so much pressure build up. We have also bled the coolant system to get all air out and it seems to
still be getting air in it somewhere but does not have any visible leaks anywhere. We also changed
the water pump just in case it wasn't working right. We have flushed the system out probably over
3-4 times. Again, we are stumped and need some help/answers. Someone please help us. Thanks.
|The key to your problem is the fact that you keep
getting air in the system.
This is a sign of a blown head gasket.

|Check fuses and relays. It depends on what type
of car you are talking about. Could be multiple
problems with your vehicle.
|What to do if the coolant tank is leaking?
|If it is just leaking, then replace it. If the system is
building too much pressure and boiling over, then
you need to fix why it is overheating.

|You must remove the entire belt tensioner
bracket. The ones that are not broken, will now
get broken, so just replaced both / all of them.
The part that goes into the lower intake manifold
can be difficult to remove the broken part.

away from inside.
