: Use an old anti-freeze jug mix half and half with water and antifreeze and wait for the air bubbles to clear. Pour slowly, very slowly until the tank is full, wait a minute or two and pour some more. Start the car, PAY ATTENTION TO THE TEMP GUAGE! After the car approaches normal temp, shut it down, allow to cool (depreasureize) open cap and check level, add as necessary as described above. I have used this procedure before and did not have to bleed the system at all. Read the Bently.
