Great help and fast reply....Thanks Space....

So is this right?? I run the car until warm, then I open the bleed screw on the gooseneck where the radiator hose connects to the top of the engine? (while the car is running) And then close it when fluid starts to come out?

ok so what I did is this. Everyday after I get home from work (after driving the car to and from work) I turned the heater on about 5 minutes before I got home. After I got home and shut off the car, I bleed the air out through the gooseneck and add antifreeze to the overflow container (to the half way mark). Did this for 3 days and now it seems like I have no more air in the system. The bleed screw only omits fluid now, no air. I no longer hear the sloshing under the passenger side dash board and the car doesn't run hot anymore. I couldn't find any other bleed screws other than the one on the gooseneck.

Gooseneck?

Whenever I bleed my system I use the bleeder screw on the top of the Thermostat housing. Takes 2 seconds, easy to reach.
