There is no bleed valve. You have to use a tool that pulls a vacume on it to fill it without getting it locked with air. Locate a small screw on the drivers side of the motor were the hose meets a hard line. (NOTE- It is a real small screw.)

Open the hood on your Sunfire. Remove the radiator cap from the radiator overflow bottle. Turn the engine on in the Sunfire, and let the engine run for no less than 15 minutes. Set the dials on the heater control panel to full fan speed, full heat, and front defrost positions. This will speed up the processes of heating the engine to full temperature. Removing the radiator cap and performing these procedures will allow the pressure in the engine to build up. As the pressure gradually increases, the weight of the coolant will force air bubbles out through the radiator overflow bottle hole. This process is called bleeding the cooling system. Turn the engine off when you notice that there are no more bubbles coming from the radiator overflow. Top off the radiator overflow bottle with fresh coolant. Use 50/50 diluted, universal coolant to fill the overflow. Replace the radiator cap when the reservoir is at the "Full" mark.

Yes but the turbo set up will need to be custom made to fit. The manifold, wastegate, turbo, cooling system all will need to be properly situated. The car will also need to be tuned.

Yes, engine oil and automatic transmission oil can both get into the cooling system.

That would be the cooling system for the engine.
