    Would letting the engine run and bubble out the top of the radiator be sufficient or do I have to use the bleed screw. For the bleed screw, what is the correct procedure for bleeding it (engine running or off, pump hoses?, etc?) Thanks.

    Definately use the bleed screw. The water will boil before you let all the air out, since you want to run it a while with the heater on to do the job.

    We just bubbled it out the top of the radiator. It worked fine, no cooling problems after.

    Where's the 'Bleed screw' on a GSR OBDII?

    follow both hoses from the radiator...if you see something that has a hole in it and looks like you can turn it with a wrench (probably gonna be on a connection to the engine) thats your bleed screw.
