2.5 V6 - How to bleed the coolant system
This is a question rather than a walkthrough I'm afraid. I have read lots of posts about water gurgling on revving etc., and whilst the heater matrix may be something to do with it, most seem to recommend getting the air out of the system too.
What I would like to know is, for the complete novice, how to bleed the air out of the coolant system. I can't believe that the only way is to run the car with the filler cap off?
I know it's a big ask, but could someone perhaps put a photo of the engine bay of a V6 and point out what valves do what, and what we should do to bleed the system?
Many thanks in advance.
