Get the nose of the car a little higher, then start it, and open the bleed screw until it's a steady stream. May need to be done a few times. I know a few guys, who will put a rag over the coolant tank opening, and blow into it. Bleed screw open, car off.

I guess it's up to us to guess what issue you are having, as you never really say. Could also be a bad cap...if you are having over heating issues.

So you don't want help figuring out the problem obviously, just bleeding the cooling system.

But you still have yet to tell us why you did those things, and why you want to know how to bleed the cooling system. I'm just saying if you want help, tell us what the problem is.

Yes fans work and boils over when it's over 90 degrees outside but other then that I can hear it bubbling when I cut the car off
