I just installed a new coolant air bleeder. After I drove around for about 20-30 minutes the car smoked. After popping the hood, steam and what looked like radiator fluid were coming from the top plug of the bleeder... How can I make this stop??

    Unfortunately, you have to replace the Bleeder housing and tube which runs under the intake manifold to the back of the engine. There is an updated bleeder housing made of steel, not plastic to eliminate this problem.
