Bleeding coolant from bleeder valve

Few questions on this subject, what size nut will I need to loosen the bleeder valve? Also, do you need to use a hose to suck the coolant out or can you just let it flow out naturally without anything to contain it?

Reason I'm doing this is to clean the system of air due to extremely low idle at 300-400 rpm.

Re: Bleeding coolant from bleeder valve

IIRC, it's either a 12mm or a 14mm socket/wrench, nothing exotic. Honda's good about that -- you can pretty much take the car apart with four standard sizes (10, 12, 14, 17mm).

Just let the coolant dribble out. The flow isn't that strong, and once it starts coming steadily, it's time to shut it off.
