You Do Not Need To Bleed The Air Out Of The Cooling System. Do This. Let The Car Cool, Remove The Radiator Cap. Start The Car (with the heater on ) Add A Bit Of Water To The Radiator. Put The Cap Back On. Fill The Resivoir To The Proper Mark. Let The Car Run Till At Normal Tempature. Then Shut It Down. Let It Cool Check The Water Level It Should Be OK. If Not Add As Needed, Including The Resivoir. Check It A Couple Times During The Next Week Or So. There is a bleed screw sticking out of a tube that runs along the front of the motor. The screw sits in front of the number two piston (front right of the motor from the perspective of someone sitting in the car). Remove the bleed screw and fill the coolant tank. When coolant begins to come out of the bleed hole, replace the screw. My service manual says that the car doesn't need to be running, but I think it wouldn't hurt.
