BLEEDING AIR FROM COOLING SYSTEM

1998 Subaru Outback

Engine Cooling problem
1998 Subaru Outback 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Manual 129000 miles

the upper radiator hose recently burst from age. I replaced it and refilled with coolant. It still overheats and there is no heat. It was fine before the hose burst and did not overheat.

Someone told me I need to bleed the air out of the cooling system, How do I do that?

If it's not air in the system, then what else could be causing the problem? The fans are working fine.

Thanks ! Nate
