start the car and turn the heat up full blast. take a flat head screw driver and open the bleed screw ( on top of radiator on left hand side). open the exp. tank cap and pour coolant into the tank until (tricky part) you see coolant start to trickle back into the exp tank through the return line inside. the coolant flowing out ifthe bleed screw should start to bubble less also. Works best with someone in the car holding car to 1500rpm. has taken me up to four tries to get all the air out of the system. you'll prly spill some on the ground, so I'd do it outside instead of in your garage
