    As i post above , i follow the instructions of XULFIQAR , but unfortunately i don't find the bleeding bolt on the radiator so i open a bolt which is placed on the metal pipe on which the top rubber pipe of the radiator is connected (on engine side) . so i remove the bolt
    start the car
    remove the radiator cap
    when i removed the raditor cap the water comes out from the bleeding bolt
    and it throws all the water from the bleeding bolt
    i pour some more water which also comes out from the bleeding bolt
    now off the engine put the bleeding bolt back
    pour some water in the radiator
    start the car with heater on
    pour some more water to make the radiator full
    and it leave it for five minutes ( but theses steps only solve 70 percent of my problem , i still have little bubbles in the radiator and also radiator makes pressure , when i open the radiator cap it sounds like opening of 7up bottle )

    now i plan to service the radiator

    ( please get in touch with me so that we can find out the solution of our problem )

    I think u r not doing it right.
    Leave everything & just follow this (moti moti karwai)
    - open radiator cap ( when cold)
    - fill it to top & start the car
    - leave it running & watch the bubble coming out
    - squeeze all big black pipes periodically
    - keep filling the water if required
    - now wait till big bubbles stop & small white foam like bubbles appear
    - after some time that foam will also reduce & eventually go away
    Now it's done & be patient as it may take abt 15-20 mins

    & yes the pressure is a normal thing. If a car doesn't pressurize the system then u should b worried.
    Keep an eye on the reserve bottle & don't fill it to top. Just fill it till upper mark

    even I dont have any overheating problem my car never overheated except once and that too was a minor heat for just a few seconds and the temp went a little over half not at the full mark and after removing the thermostat valve it never went over half,my car doesnt give any smoke and no engine oil water mix infact the oil is in very good condition its 2k kms after the last oil change and the oil colour is still the same as it was when it was new, I think my head bolts or not tight or the worst case is the head gasket ,took it to a honda dealership yesterday and he said the same ,its the Head bolts if not then the gasket ...
    will try to bleed the air tomorrow yar plz specify my where the bolt is I couldnt find it ,plz take a picture or help me locate it

    Thanx for your reply , yar first of all i want to tell you that i am not an expert as this is my first car and i use it from last 6 months so i did not know any thing related to cars .
    Yes you are right , my mechanic is very honest man and i found him after very hard work , his work shop is located in the front of airport on the main shahr e faisal on the name of omer autos located in the chota gate auto mechanic market , he is an old man and have a lot of experience
    For bleeding the air form the colling system follow the following steps.
    Open the radiator cap
    Start the car
    Fill the water in radiator till the neck of the raditor if water level drops add more water
    and now squeeze the big radiator hose pipes
    leave the car start for 15 to 20 minutes and squeeze the pipes after every 2 minutes
    Give some race after every 3 to 4 minutes
    off the engine
    Put the radiator cap back

    Get Your Gasket Replaced If Its Bad.......!! You Don't Want To Replace Whole Head Later If It Gets Worse And Overheat ...!!

    Who Knows From Where Its Leak.......! Might Cause Oil Water Mix Sometime Resulting In Serious Damage...!

    So If Its Broken...Get It Replaced....! Since You Have Done Everything Regarding Air Bleed...There Should Be No Doubts

    there is no bleeder on the Pakistani assembled civics, the japanese models have a bleed nipple on the top radiator pipe flange.. To bleed, you need to park the car nose up and squeeze the pipes with engine running and heater running at full to remove all air.

    You can also try to use the small coolant pipes on the back of the engine to bleed air - they go to the throttle body.
