It will get very hot, if it still has air pockets trapped. Get the nose a bit higher, then open the bleeder on the WP neck, while running. Others will put a rag over the coolant tank opening and blow with the bleeder open, and the car off.

I have never experienced issues after bleeding it once. However, I typically park the front wheels on our driveway, and leave the rest of the car in the dirt road. Which gives me a very decent amount of "reverse rake"(ass low, nose high).

Ok, I tried that today with the engine running, it doesnt have a bleeder on the water pump so I just opened the top on the reservior it just kept bubbling, even after running awhile, I also noticied the passenger fan not running while it was bubbling and the temp, gauge stop working I jacked the car up in the front while the car was running?
Very disturbing
