Coolant Refill

Can anyone confirm if adding/refilling coolant to the system is okay via the overflow tank? Been looking online and don't find a spot on the actual radiator to add it. Just replaced my thermostat on my '07 2.2.
Also, any reason to believe i need to bleed the lines or is simply adding back what came out okay?

Yes add premixed Dexcool to the overflow tank and let the system suck it in.

no need to bleed the lines, the thermostat will suck in the coolant when the temp is reached, just fill the resevior as you do this. it can go fast so be careful.
