Question about 2007 Scion tC Coupe
Will I have to fill it first then run the car to let the air out or as I fill it.
If the car's engine is cold you can fill it up while the car is off, if the car is hot, turn it off and wait for it to cool down before filling it up. Once you have filled it up, you will just need to run your car for a short period, this will remover anymore excess air from the engine. ( This is only necessary if your radiator was empty, which is should be as you would have drained it to replace the pipes).

o This is the generic method to purge air from the cooling system.
Use a floor jack and raise the front of the car as high as possible, then fill the coolant recovery tank full and run the engine until it reaches the high end of normal zone on gauge, do not overheat the engine, then shut the engine down and run cold water over the radiator core, this will self bleed the system of air and the coolant will be pulled from the recovery tank to fill the void, repeat as necessary, never let the recovery tank run dry or more air will be pulled into the system.
