      Take a look behind the engine going to the firewall . Should be two heater hoses covered by a corrugated plastic cover , right next to the battery . Theres a place to bleed the air under the cover . If your car doesn't have a bleed screw you can loosen one of the hoses to bleed the system .

      Can't you just bleed air by simply opening the coolant reservoir cap and idle the car for a while as long as you thread the cap in couple of times so as to just let air out and not any water?
      love it or shove it.
