Ok i will gladly assist you on this i have the same issue,

1. have a bottle of coolent ready
2. pop hood
3 make sure the car is running and the heater on high, with the temp set at the highest setting.
4. remove bleader screw(be carful not to lose the screw), leave the cap on the tank.
5. at the throttle body there is a lever pull it back just a little to bring up the rpms
6. watch the bleader hole as the rpms are up you will see large are bubbles.
7. release the throttle after seeing bubbles.
8. check coolent level in the tank you will need to to it off.
9. repeat as offten as needed if you loose heat.

The Pelican article is definitely the most efficient, but very messy.
