2006 300SRT Bleeding air from cooling system

He guys i know this been discussed before but is there pics of any bleed screws. On my LS1 i would just let the car get hot and with the radiator cap off and it would burp out the air. On this model not sure. I found a screw next to the thermostat housing i think directly below my intake elbow which looks like a waterpump bleeder screw, but that thing is on there so tight and has white sealant or something on there it wont budge. I tried to leave the radiator cap off and let the car run to burp it but backed out before it got hot enough since im not familiar with this system. Are there pics or a video were i can go to and see what needs to be done. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Ohh this came about since i changed my thermostat to a 180 and need to bleed the air out.

Since that screw is the highest internal coolant/air point in the engine, you need to loosen it. Try some penetrating oil on it. Good luck!

well i tried to loosen it and to no success. Ive put penetrating lube and nothing let it warm and nothing. Its getting to the point were its stripping the bolt. I let the car idle for 25 minutes and drove it for 30 stop and go traffic left heater on and then turned it off and cant get the thing past 200 on the gauge. The needle is not irratic and slowly but surely went up to 200. It actually runs a tad cooler then before not much for some reason thought i would also have to set the fans before the thermostat can be effective.

ya whoever it was before me put some white sealant or some crap on there and its holding it in place very tight. Its causing me to strip it. I just said f it and left it alone because if i try anymore it will be useless and would have to take it to a mechanic and have them drill it out or something. Its just my luck i guess. So far the car isnt overheating but i dont know how long that will last, im sure if im on my way to work it will overheat which is the worst situation and trying to avoid it. Ive pretty much tried everything i can to get it to overheat and the damn thing runs cooler then before. My wifes like ive never seen someone so disappointed because there car is not overheating, lol. Im like id rather have it overheat now then when im stuck in traffic.

LOL...well, maybe it's good but not being able to bleed the cooling system sucks. The alternative to this is the burping process you mentioned earlier. You can try it and see how far coolant level drops after about 1/2 hour.

ill keep turning the car on with the radiator cap off and get it hot enough to burp it out. In the near future i need to take this in and get that bolt issue resolved it almost looks like teflon but the lube version of it. I scraped around the bolt and sprayed it several times to get it loose but man this dude probably had a leak from there in the past and he just put that crap on there thick, lol. Thanks Maddog for the help bud hope your having a great 4th and drink alot just dont drive lol.

Well today was the real test if it was going to overheat. Since im stuck in stop and go traffic for 1-1 1/2 hours to work i figured im either screwed or ill be ok. It got as high as 217 and then as low as 185 as far as the temp. Actually before it would get as high as 228-232 and as low as 195 or so. So it runs a tad cooler not a whole lot. I haven yet set the fans or anything till i get the predator and its scheduled for today delivery. Once i do that ill get a data log and send it off to Johan.
