SOURCE: How do I bleed the

The simplest way is to raise the front of the vehicle to where the radiator is higher than the engine. Start the engine, turn the heater controls to maximum temperature and remove the radiator cap. Let the engine run, when the thermostat opens up, the coolant level in the radiator tank will drop as the coolant is being drawn into the engine. Pour antifreeze into the radiator until it is full. Let the coolant level drop again, and repeat the filling process. Continue to do this until the coolant level no longer drops. All the air has been displaced with liquid. Put the radiator cap back on and lower the vehicle. A tip: add the coolant slowly so as not to cause the thermostat to close. If it closes you will lose some coolant from overflow. Just wait for it to open up again and refill.

02 ford explorer 4.0 overheating and suddenly blowing cold air, then hot again while engine runs cool but not long

Most likely you have air trapped in your engine, particularly in the heater loop. You need to properly bleed the air out of your radiator cooling system. The hot and cold blasts of air coming from first hot water followed by air.
Read up on how to bleed air out of your radiator system. Some systems are very difficult to bleed.
If after doing a good bleed of the radiator system the problem returns, you may have a bad head gasket or other leak in your cooling system which is injecting air into the cooling system (radiator/water cooling system).

Changed thermo sat was bleeding out of air and coolent and then it stop bleeding out coolent and temp gage runs over half way and its blowing out cold air why

There is still air in your cooling system and it is either in the heater core or blocking it. Turn the heater on max. heat and the fan on high and start the car and re-bleed the air from the system. It may take a while but you will get hot air from the heater and by then the air should be out of the system. Hope this helps.

How do you bleed the air out of the coolant system on a 2000 chevy malibu?

The generic method of bleeding air from the cooling system of any car or truck is to use a floor jack and raise the front of the car as high as poss, then fill the coolant recovery tank full and run the engine until it just starts to overheat, high end of normal zone on gauge, then shut the engine down and run cold water over the radiator core, this will self bleed the system and the coolant will be pulled from the recovery tank, repeat as necessary, never let the recovery tank run dry or more air will be pulled into the cooling systeml , if it still overheats then you need to have the head gaskets checked with a gas analyzer for hydrocarbons present in the radiator or recovery tank
