bleeding coolant

Ok so I've had numerous coolant leaks, first from the expansion - replaced, and the oil temp sensor (was leaking first but slow). Now i've gotten my new sensor (also got the o ring by it self, but was afraid of breaking the temp sensor if just replacing the ring and not being able to move the car until i got a new sensor).

Now I want to replace the sensor and also bleed the system, but how do I do this? I don't have the battery charger? Is it necessary?

Different depending on the year and engine model of your car. What do you have?
