I would assume with heat all the way up in both situations as well as nose jacked up to help air get to front.

Thanks for all the responses.
The only thing that happens with the heat on is the heater valve opens allowing hot coolant into the heater core

You need the car running to allow the water pump to circulate coolant and force air to the bleeder screw and cap.
