Or even easier, make sure the radiator is full, then fill the coolant reservior until it's about an inch OVER the full line. Start the car, let it warm up and go for a drive (it may take a couple full cold to hot cycles to finish the job). The air will work itself out into the reservoir like it's designed to, then bringing the coolant level in the reservoir down to it's normal level. Always keep an eye on the reservoir though. The 2005-2009 Spectras always consume coolant (usually about 1/3 to 1/2 the reservoir every 5k miles or so). Just keep it topped off and you shouldn't have any problems.
