Cooling system

How do i get the air out of the cooling system after changing the fluid. I did the heat and cool cycle with the heater on high like the book told me. Still doesnt throw heat

Sometimes a steep uphill and some idling can do it. Check the coolant level and add more if needed before you do anything else. As if you didn’t know.

Greatest idea ever:

Did the heat work before you changed the coolant, or did you change the coolant in an attempt to fix a problem?

The heat did work. I upped the level of anti-freeze as i live in Fairbanks Alaska…can see -50

Place the car on ramps and then run it till all the air bubbles out and the car reaches operating temp. The thermostat must open to get flow to the heater core.
