SOURCE: 2000 Lincoln ls overheating
There is a hose on the side of the coolant resevoir that has a straight blade screwdriver fitting in it. Open the fitting and this will bleed the heads on the LS. Without opening this you will never get the air out of the head, trust me.

I have a 1985 Jetta diesel. What I did since the car has no way of bleeding the air out of the system via bleeder screw I parked the car on a slight incline leaving the tank for the fluid at a higher level. I ran the car until the thermostat opened (The thermostat is on the bottom of my engine) I kept topping off the antifreeze. I also kept a jug of anti freeze and water in my car for the next few day. Whenever I got done driving the car and the car cooled off I would check it to see if I needed to top it off. I finally got the air out of it. You could call the vw dealer to see if there is a bleeder on the engine, if so open the bleeder and fill until antifreeze/water comes out, then close the bleeder and top it off to the full level. Just to be safe check the level after you drive the car. Air can still get trapped.

Perform a liquid block test (with the bottle of fluid over the radiator mouth.) If the blue liquid turns yellow or clear, you have hydrocarbons entering the cooling system (usually via head gskt.) If not, you have ruled out a costly repair.
Sounds like it overheats pretty easily, without t-stat! This block testing liquid is cheap, and will verify a suspected leaking head gasket without lengthy diagnosis. Hope it's better news, but good luck!

SOURCE: Help with cooling system!!
OK, firstly The basis that a cars cooling system runs on is very simple. The system is a pressurized cycle that moves the coolant around, along with the heat, and is slowest in the radiator to allow heat to escape. If the system is not pressurized then the cycle will not work properly and coolant will not move.
If there is air in the system this can create what would seem like a blockage. 'bleeding the system is not the answer especially if you are using the drain on the radiator. That drain is only for draining fluid not air.
If air blockage is the problem then what you do is open the system at the highest point possible. this is usually a hose at the top of the radiator or something, whatever is easiest. Then find the other hose attached to the radiator, lower, higher makes no difference. then simply squeeze the second hose. this will 'burp' the air out do this for a while until all that happens is fliud is pushed out repeatedly.
then reattach the top hose and top up the radiator, and go for a drive.
If this doesn't fix the problem then air is not the problem.
