coolant bleed valve.

So far I havent had to bleed the cooling system, but thought I might get ahead of the problem by installing the self bleeding valve in the hose.

Which hose, and which way round. I have already ordered it from GM

Are you referring to the check valves? I don't think I've seen them called bleed valves, but they may have been.

There are threads with pictures about installing the check valves.

To find them on Ebay it took that name. You can call them "Mary" but then you wont find them on EBay.

Thank you SlyBob good references.
