hey all i got a EF falcon with ticky gas conversion from standard from factory, it keeps freezing after a 5-10 mins of 1 throittle position, as when i pull up at lights it just idles rough and stalls, im thinking theres an airlock, now the question, there is a coolant hose at the very top of the converter im assuming the inlet maybe, and next to it is a small philips head screw, is this the bleeder valve? or screw, if not what else could it be?, or where can i bleed it?, cheers fellas

Give the system a flush or at least stick the garden-hose in that hose and fill/flush to make sure it's not blocked

The only reason it would freeze up would be lack of circulation (like the time I disconnected the heater hose on one of my old cars!) so if you're worried about air lock just undo the hose and see if coolant runs out or fill it with the garden hose for starters
