I bled my coolant and air definitely came out but I was wondering how much air is a lot. My car overheats sometimes and no one knows why. I bled it and drove around with air on full blast and it was fine. I am driving to california in a week and I want to know if my problem was air in my lines. Will air cause it to overheat or just get warm? Sorry for asking pretty much the same questions but I really need this solved.

It can... water transfers heat quickly. Air doesn't. So any air in there won't absorb heat from the block quickly and when it gets to the radiator, it won't cool down quickly. So in general, the block temps could be higher than normal.

Mostly, your sensor will see a false high temp if air gets around it. This is because the sensor will start to measure the temp of the block and not of the coolant. The block will be hotter than the coolant.
