Take the bleeder out, take it with you and go find a like sized brass pipe plug from the auto parts store. Try NAPA auto parts or Carquest, they have the best selection of this kind of stuff

all you have to do is run the engine after filling the coolant bottle to the cold fill mark just start the engine and let it run with the cap off the level will go down and then add more antifreeze The coolant circulates and gradually vents air out when it expands put the cap on and drive the car the next day check the level if you need it add more when the engine is cold to the cold full mark on the bottle that's it this is a simple thing that's done by running the engine have fun and good luck Stephen if for some reason your having some other problem post back we're all here to help you put hey Stephen and I'll see it o.k. -------later man!

Notice: When adding coolant, it is important that you use GM Goodwrench DEX-COOL?"¢ coolant. If coolant other than DEX-COOL?"¢ is added to the system, the engine coolant will require change sooner: at 50 000 km (30,000 miles) or 24 months.
When installing the drain plugs, use pipe sealer GM P/N 12346004.
Important: On vehicles equipped with the 3.4L engine, open the coolant air bleed valve. The coolant air bleed valve is located on the top of the thermostat bypass pipe/heater pipe assembly. Close the valve once a continuous stream of coolant is expelled from the valve.
Important: After servicing the cooling system, and if the vehicle is equipped with an intermittent low coolant light, an occasional low coolant light may be encountered during some extreme driving maneuvers. This complaint should be eliminated by removing the surge tank cap and adding coolant to a level just at or above the full cold line when the system is cold.
Important: Dispose of used coolant in a proper fashion, such as in a used coolant holding tank. Never pour used coolant down the drain. Ethylene glycol antifreeze is a very toxic chemical. Disposing of ethylene glycol antifreeze into the sewer system is both illegal and ecologically unsound.
There is currently no approved method for recycling used DEX-COOL?"¢ coolant into new DEX-COOL?"¢ coolant. DEX-COOL?"¢ coolant can be recycled into new conventional coolant. Consult local listings for coolant recycling facilities in your area.

I always park on a slight incline with engine cool...start with radiator cap off and air should travel to radiator and out
