Re: coolent bleeding

Bleed the air out of what.. the cooling system?
99% of the time there is never any issue... fill up run engine top up to the level marked on the end of the radiator.
If worried further , fill up with the car pointing up a slop or front jacked higher .....

I assume before replacing head gaskets u had the heads skimmed as a matter or good practice?
And the head and valley cover bolts had sealer on the threads ?

Re: coolent bleeding

Steptoe you need to pay attention to the forum the question is in and the year/generation the car is...

On 4th gen's air in the cooling system is a big deal. The owners manual will explain where the system bleed screw(s) are and how to bleed the system. V6, LS-1 and LT-1 are all slightly different.

Yes, it just happened to me yesterday. I had to replace the intake manifold gaskets (water got into the oil) and during the test drive the temperature rose higher than normal. After filling with a little more anti-freeze it was OK.

Re: coolent bleeding

A little correction to what I posted. It seems there is no bleed screw(s) on an LS-1 like the LT-1 has. What year Camaro and engine do you have?

You didn't specify what type of 4th gen you have. On my 2002 Z28, the cooling system has a cross-over pipe that connects the left and right heads. In the middle is a hose that routes to the top of the radiator below the fill cap. This is the air bleed - bubbles will auto-magically find their way into the top of the radiator.
