Thank you Bruce. NO the only light that comes on is the temperature one. I am really uncertain with power. So how do I bleed the system

there should be a bleeder screw near thermostat housing do you know for a fact that it is overheating or could it be in the sensor how long does it take for light to come on

About 8 minutes the lights cimes on amd cuts off the engine. All I need now are the points of bleeding the coooling system. Anyone with the picture and clear location??
