Bleeding Air Out of Cooling System

I know, it's been posted in the past. However, there's been tons of different methods listed. I want the real method, the recommended method for using the "Air Escape" or whatever the little thing on the top is called to let the air out.

Recently I was attempting to detach the throttle body, but didn't recall coolant running to it, so a very little amount dripped out before I called it a day. I'm fed up with the COOLING system, call it Headgasket paranoia, after $1700 in repairs the last thing u want to do is deal with the cooling system for a long time.

Regardless, I feel if a little bit of coolant dripped, air must have gone in, and I don't want to drive it till I properly bleed it out.

So if someone can please list the steps to the real method of doing this, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks

Too late I already did it. Hope I did it the right way...


1.) Purchased some Genuine Honda Brand Coolant. Mixed with 50% water.


2.) Set heater controls to MAXIMUM heating temp.

3.) Opened Air Bleeder Bolt

4.) Waited till no air bubbles came out of system, re-tightened bolt.

5.) Waited 5mins, checked resevoir coolant level, filled to line (hardly any needed).

6.) Let car cool down some more, Carefully opened radiator cap to check level of fluid. Squeezed upper radiator hose to expel any air in it.

7.) Replaced Radiator Coolant, Filled as necessary. (hardly any needed)

8.) Started Engine and waited 5mins for any leaks or abnormalities.

DID I DO THIS RIGHT???? I dont' want air in my cooling system =p
