Re: Coolant

You could - it's an M6 thread but why would you want to? If it's needing regular bleeding you need to check for head gasket failure.

Re: Coolant

Why would you want to?
Once bled you shouldn't need to touch the screw again until the coolant is changed again

avoid doing this, because the coolant bleed screw is important when servicing the coolant system to bleed the air from the coolant system
if air remains in the coolant system, then coming unexpected overheating issues and no heating air in the cabin

Re: Coolant

I can see the value of using a syringe to suck air out of the heater hose loop. But if you squeeze the radiator top hose, fluid will bubble through the heater hose bleed hole. Put your finger over the hole while you release the hose. Then repeat. Put the screw back in when coolant is running out.
