With the heater valve open, and the blower motor on, when you begin to feel heat, the system is close to being blead, may take 20-30 mins. As soon as no more air is visible coming from the clear hose you installed in the bleeder valve (coolant only coming out), close the valve. Make sure the tanks in the motor compartment are full to the correct level. Main, with the pressure cap - full, aux. up to the correct level.
