How do I bleed the coolant system.  I have no
experience with cars but i have look at several
videos on how to bleed a system and it looks like i
can do it myself.  But i can not locate the little
bleeder vaule that im supposed to open.  Can
anyone help me locate it.  I have attached a pictue
of what i am looking for from a video i watched.

Here is my engine


loosen it wait till green comes out. then tighten start engine and watch inside radiator cap for fluid needing replenishment. when it stops falling close cap and operate to engine temperature top off after engine is cold. maintain cold level in recovery tank

So i dont need to find the bleeder vaule?


the picture you sent is the bleeder...loosen it and sometimes bubbles appear or hissing sound until fluid comes out then tighten it


your engine pic is garbage ...look on your engine around where top radiator hose goes into engine
