In Europe we have,on the highest hot hose a small tap that you undo to vent air from the system,if you have not got one...then just undo the clip when the engine is hot and running to vent off.(wear rubber gloves cos its HOT.

Engine head skimmed and replaced how does one install water 2.5i engineie bleed system tom make sure no air pockets

you want to use a 50/50 mix of anti freeze & water. The best way to avoid air trapped is to have a shop do evac/fill with their vacuum equipment. ABout $85.

To do your self, have radiator as high up in the air as you can get it by rasing the van. Then pour in coolant slowly until it's full. Keep track of amount you put in. Then start engine with radiator cap loose until return hose is hot. This means thermostat opened and coolant is flowing. Keep radiaitor and reservoir full. Tighten radiator cap & let it cool down. It will **** coolant from the reservoir as it cools, so keep it full.
Repeat if you did not get proper amount in.

How do I bleed the water system on a VW Kombi the moment I blew the head due to overheating for the 2nd time....

To bleed the cooling system effectively you will need to use a cooling system charge unit.Your local VW Commercial dealer has this tool or it can be purchased from a reputable tool dealer e.g Snap-On,Mac,Sealey etc.When used with a compressed air feed,this tool applies a vacuum to the cooling system and draws ALL the air out before replenishing the coolant (this tool uses a sealed system so no chance of air entering system).This STOPS hot spots in the clinder head and turbo

How to check if vw 1996 microbus radiator is

You must remove the bottom rubber hose from the radiator, and also the upper hose. Extract the radiator out or simply flush the radiator in reverse direction of water flow. If the radiator is clogged you can try to clean inside (chemically) or replace it. Flush the cooling system in reverse direction of water flow. Refit all in reverse order and after that purge air out of cooling system.

Black smoke from exhaust

this guy is wrong. Black smoke means to rich[to much fuel]. Your motor is not shot. Something is wrong with the engine management[sensor]. White or blue smoke is a fatal problem.

Volkswagen Microbus 2.5i clutch does not work

After repairing any hydraulic system in which the fluid has drained you always need to bleed the air out. Open the bleeder screw on the clutch slave cylinder and have an assistant push the pedal down, then close the bleeder and tell the assistant to let the pedal return (up)... Repeat this process till you have a solid stream (no air bubbles)... remember to keep adding fluid to the reservoir! If it goes dry you will have to start bleeding all over again... Hope this helps...;-)
