    I don't know how you have things plumbed but there should be a bleed line at the top of the outlet of the engine - it "should" release the air trapped in the top of the head area.
    As odd as this may sound, get the nose of the car as high as you can (side of a dune, winch and a tree) - like wheelie high and then see if that will move the air to the radiator where you can get it out.
    Bleeding should be that much different, as the heat exchanger are just funky radiators. It's a line in and a line out on either system.

    Well it looks like nobody plumbed in a bleeder valve, I ended up just burping it like you would a car motor by squeezing on the inlet and outlet hoses with the radiator cap off and watching the flow, after I did that a few times, you could see the coolant level dropped about 4 inches, so I put the radiator cap, I ran the snot out of it today and never got an overheat light or thermometer icon, running great now but thanks for replying!!

    Hey! What rims are you running in the rear with the 28" or 29" tires. I have the 1st Gen tazcar with Apex and want to go bigger from the 26" and am running Douglas 190's 4/156 rims. Thanks
