okay straight from the helms manual

9. Pour coolant into the radiator up to the base of the
tiller neck.
10. Start the engine and let
it run until it warms up (the radiator fan comes on at least twice).
11 . Turn off the engine. Check the level in the radiator
add coolant if needed.
12.
Put the radiator cap on tightly, then run the engine
again and check for leaks.



when you run the engine with the cap off it will circulate the coolant the air will rise and escape through the highest point which is the rad cap.. you can quicken the process by squishing the hoses a bunch of times

both... mostly lower its not that huge of a deal once you actually drive the car and get it to operating temp the thermostat will open and all the air will move up youll just need to top up with coolant after it cools down again...

basicly

add coolant

run it for a few mins with the cap off squish the hosese a bunch of times till you dont really see the coolant going down anymore then put the cap on after youve driven it and let it cool down check the lvl and top up

Now wait, Anthony how about just try driving and see if the car even overheats? This all seems pointless if it doesn't. As I said, it will go up half way up the gauge quick if you start booting it. Your DC as you explained may have this or other problems as thermostat stuck.
But it just seems pointless doing unnecessary work... Idle the car and watch the temp gauge if it even goes past half mark. Because I'm sure if you were driving with some spirit and it was at half already, it would have shot up to H very quick. So first see if there is a problem, then trouble shoot it. I called an air bubble but I was half asleep and you didn't give me enough details.
