Question about Cars & Trucks
Loosen off the top hose a fraction ( just enough to let oil drip out) and cycle the clamp. Oil will be under extreme pressure so keep your hands well away from the fitting and wear eye protection When there are no more air bubbles and the clamp is working as designed tighten up the fitting.

you need two persons
open the bleeder screw on the wheel that is furthest from the master cylinder and do the nearest last.
have a person pump on the brake pedal and hold firm while you open the screw, then close it before tell the person pump again
repeat until you see no more air come out
make sure you fill up the master cylinder, do not let it run out of fluid

If a valve is expose on the upper heater hose piping crack that open only when the engine is warmed up for at least 15 minutes. If no valve is seen you will need to loosen one of the heater hose clamps ever so slowly to let the air out. The process to loosen the clamp is not recommended unless you do this first..... When the engine is COLD loosen a hose clamp and remove the hose and put it back on. Thighten the hose clamp snug only. The start the engine to warm up. In about three minutes see if you can twist the hose to move on the fitting. If you can snug the clamo a lttle more and check again. You do not want the hose to come off if too loose. Now that the engine is warmed up for 10 to 15 minutes shut OFF the engine and barely loosen the same clamp 1/4 turn at a time until coolant trickles out. Listen carefully for air escaping too. Air pressure does built up only when the engine gets hot and the air pocket does not move when the engine was cold with the hose removed beforehand. If no air was released upon this proceedure you have a blockage in your system and flushing maybe the only other option using pressure instead forcing the coolant out. Get a can of coolant flush before the power flush proceedure. A radiator pressure tester can be used to power flush with an air fitting adapter installed in place of the guage
