    Most tool hire places will have what's called a vacuum bleeder that you can connect to a fluid system to draw out any air pockets

    I've used one of these on brakes and they worked amazingly, and have heard of people using them on rear mount radiator systems as well

    Where are you trying to bleed the air from?
    The air will usually get stuck in the higher points in the system, if your rad/expansion bottle aren't the highest point then trapped air is quite likely.

    If the rad is at the rear then jack the back of the car right up in the air, then run the car and hopefully the air pockets will move.

    Do you have any bleed points in the engine bay?
