I believe I have an air pocket in my cooling system. After a 1/2 hour highway drive then at idle the temp gauge goes up to 3/4 from the regular 1/2. I was told it was an air pocket that has to be bled from the cooling system. From looking online I see that Honda's have a beeder but not Toyotas. My engine is the Toyota 1MZ-FE 6-cyl 3.0. I was thinking of getting that special yellow funnel kit that attaches to the radiator neck to get all the air out, will this help? I have sqeezed the upper hose to remove bubbles too. I was thinking I could remove the temp sensor above the thermostat to allow air to bleed out. Should I do this? I have driven over 200 miles with this problem but it hasn't gone away. Please help.
