when the car is cool remove the radiator cap and start the engine, add any coolant needed to top off the radiator and when the car gets warm the thermostat will open and the coolant will begin to flow and you can viaually see this with the cap off, at this time the air will work itself out of the system, you can pump the upper/lower radiator hoses to aide in this process, when the car is warm and your content the air is out put the cap back on and turn off the car.
