run your motor till warm (stationary) with the radiator cap off or expansion tank depends on the age of car wait for the water to expand 3 times which means letting the water raise to the top of the filler cap it may overspill the replace cap this will expel all air locks hope this helps :)

you need to remove upper rad. hose at t-stat housing. fill plastic tank till you see coolant comming up t-stat housing. then put hose back on....should be good to go....
