Do I need to bleed?
My coolant reservoir had a small leak so I am replacing it. It had coolant in it when I stopped the car but was dry when the engine cooled down. Do I need to bleed the system when I put in the new one and fill it up? If so, where is the bleed plug in the engine compartment? The service notes say "From within the engine bay, open the air bleed plug in the heater return hose at the left hand rear of the engine bay." I could not find this labeled in any diagrams. There is a coolant line at the rear of the engine that has a plastic segment in the middle with a plastic nut on it - is that the bleed plug?
