There is no purge valve to bleed air from the system and not needed. Once you change the coolant, empty and refill the reservoir and drive the car as normal. Air in the system will burp out the reservoir over a couple of days, just check to see if you need to refill the reservoir.

Just to build on Traylaw's advice,

Be sure to monitor the coolant in the plastic reservoir over the next 6 - 10 drive cycles, it WILL drop. A couple higher RPM runs (hold the engine in a lower gear) will help drive that air out.
