Depending on the type you have some have bleeders on top others you just leave loose on open valve until some spills out. you must bleed out the air

Furnace power has to turned off and on then it will start and run. Had to do this 2. Days in row now.

Oil burner? If so sounds like there was or is air bubble's in the in the system due to no oil in tank or a breach in the oil feed system (sucking air) . check your oil tank to see if it's empty, if full look for leaks around the filter and or air bleed screw on top of the oil filter housing. the furnace oil feed line will need to be purged of air at the pump with the bleeder screw. Call a heating repair man if you are not mechanically inclined but if you are try bleeding the system. here's a video of how you do it.

I have just replaced the coolant in my 2012 T5 VW with the 2.0 biturbo diesel and now it's over heating, do I have to bleed the cooling system?

Right dont think their is a bleed out on this motor ,fill it up run engine till warm then allow to coool and check the level again,should be ok unless you have another problem that you havent stated previously like why did you change the antifreeze in the first place ,stop reading all these s t u p i d books by little more than technical writers who think they know it all and know sweet FFFFFFF all .You only change antifreeze if a leak or a component change .Yes i know what they say but beleave me you will change a hose or water pump before the antifreeze needs changing.Leave well alone while a motor runs just do a regular oil change every 5000 miles witha oil filter every third oil change ,inspect everything but leave it alone and stop reading these sunday drivers type book .

My oil furnance is running but when it reches temperature it shuts off and will not come back on until we bleed the lines

You have a small leak on the suction side of the pump between the tank and the pump. when this happens the pump looses prime each time the furnace shuts down and when the furnace tries to fire up again the saftey device trips before the oil gets to the burner.

Getting poor intermittent flame. I changed out my

It sounds like there is a leak in the suction side. Be sure all connections are tight and you replaced all gaskets etc. I am not familiar with your system but hopefully this helps.

Reillo 40 oil burner wont start

If I read correctly, you should have a pump for your fuel oil. If you are not getting anything out of the bleed screw I would suggest you start there, see if it is running, then check for clogged fuel lines, or possibly filter. Do you have a pilot light or HSI? Does that come on?
