Either get a brake bleeding kit. Or have someone pump the brakes while you crack open the bleeder valve until each wheel is air free.

86 fiero overheating

Low on coolant, air bubble in coolant, water pump faulty, coolant fan motor/relay/switch/fuse bad, collapsed hose only when RPMs are raised, bad thermostat, any of these could be the cause. Low coolant and electrical issues are easy enough to sort out.
Good Luck!

Air in brake system only from left rear bleeder valve on 1986 celica

Air is getting in the line from somewhere, are all the replaced fittings tight? Do the brake lines need replacing? After all it is a 31 year old car

Replaced thermostat and sending unit .check engine light went out .on incline have 3/4 gage warm, when level goes 1/4 on gage cold air,temp wont get hot.or 1/4 gage.could this be computer if so how to...

Not computer. You have air in the cooling system. Bubble is moving around. Park on an upward incline, take the radiator cap off, run the engine and keep the radiator full. Let it warm up and let the thermostat open (until you see flow in the radiator). Then fill to the brim and keep full until it stops going down. Also open any bleed ports you can find in the cooling system (there may not be any) and let any air out of them. Let the engine run and check for any bubbles that continue to come out. If bubbles continue to come up, you have a blown head gasket that is forming the bubble and causing the heater and temp gage issues. If bubbles do not come out, maybe you have fixed the problem by getting all the air out. Please let me know if you have any questions.

I broke a coolant line under the body. Repaired

Yes it sounds like an air pocket, Remove the radiator cap make sure radiator is full and over flow jug is to the full cold line, start the engine holding the rpm at 2,000 wait for the temp. to come up to normal operating temp. let it idle and top off coolant, be careful of puking air bubbles coming out of the radiator.Replace cap and test drive aprox. 5 miles watching the temp gauge.

Air bubble in coolant.

Replace the thermostat. That is the only cause of the bubbles.

Thermostat replacing

On most of the vehicles I've replaced them on, When you open up the housing, there is the 2 support arms at the top, with the main plug part entering from underneath.

The seal it sits on may still have an impression of the one removed.
If you install a new one - and rad doesn't warm up - then it's the wrong way. To be honest, it shouldn't make a difference in working, only in fitting.
