No, let the truck idle a bit with the degas bottle cap off.

Why do you think you have air in your system?

If you had air it would be in the high spots in the cooling system. Have you been following the other heater issues going around lately? Alot of heater problems have started rearing their ugly heads with the colder weather coming.

If you have the dash mounted 4wd selector you could have a vacuum leak in one of your hubs. Some say bad head gaskets cause heat issues too but I'm not really up on the reason.
