Coolant System Bleed

Just to make sure I do this to its full potential and possibly eliminate my damn overheating, its...

-Take radiator cap off
-Let car warmup to normal operating temp(fans should kick on twice)
-losen bleed valve bolt on thermo housing, let run until coolant comes out with no bubbles present
-tighten bleed bolt
-fill any neccessary coolant

I also heard squeezing hoses and reving the engine a bit helps get air bubbles out better....and what is the deal with the heater, do i let the heater run full blast during the entire process?

I think that's right clere but I'm not 100% sure. Never had to bleed the coolant system before.

the bubbles have to come out of the highest opening in the system to completely rid it of air. i just said this in another thread like two seconds ago. whats with the coolant issue? but yeah, grab a cv boot. secure it to the top of the radiator. fill until bottom of boot has coolant. turn car on, keep the level around the bottom of the boot. squeezing the hoses and revving the engine do help. when all the bubbles are out, fans kick on twice, turn the a/c on to lower the level of coolant so you can put the radiator cap on without spilling. i think i left that last part out in the other thread, ha.
