Gurgling sound forced hot water

We have a forced hot water system. I can hear a lot of flowing water sound. I know there is air in the system and I somehow need to fill those air pockets with water. The question is, how ?

i am attaching some pictures of the system if someone can point which valve(s) I need to open or close

You need to bleed the air out of the system. There should be bleeder valves on your radiators.

Thanks much. Bleeded through the valve in baseboard. First air, then stuttered water and finally normal flow
However, I did it only in the baseboard where I was getting the noise

The sound reduced for a few days but back again Tried bleeding again, and some stuttered water came out. Looks like there are still air.

Do I need to check/do anything else ?

You need to bleed all radiators to get all the air out. You might also need to bleed at the boiler.

Thanks. Started all other radiators, but can you help me understand how to bleed boiler ? I have attached the pictures in my first post. I can hear a lot of noise near the boiler.

When you try to bleed, temporarily jack up the system pressure to, say, 25psi.
