Question about Opel Cars & Trucks
My Opel does NOT have radiator cap. So question is : How to do it?
Find the highest hose and loosen of the clamp to release the air from the system
many have a bleed screw at that point as well
have a compression test done and have a coolant pressure test done to check for leaks

cool air and overheating point to low coolant level. Do you have a bleeder valve near the thermostat? You may have air trapped in the system. If no air trapped, the radiator may be plugged up not allowing proper circulation of coolant.

Definitely recommended - Process is fairly simple, let the vehicle idle and/or reach normal operating temperature - turn the"bleed screw" slightly open and note as the air bubbles escapes from the screw. Also make sure the radiator is topped up with sufficient coolant. Funny enough, the mechanic should have taken care of this process after replacing the thermostat....
