1998 Honda Odyssey surging while in drive and park Sign In

To sum up my issues, I've been trying to troubleshoot why my honda odyssey is surging. I live in NZ and the mechanics i've taken it to have not been able to diagnose the problem. I have

1. checked the IACV
2.cleaned out the throttle body
3. replaced distributor cap
4. reset the ECU
5. checked for leaks
6. had the timing and idling done

and probably lots more my over fried brain can't think of at the moment. I've recently just burped the coolant system and released the bleed bolt near the radiator and quite a lot of air came out of it. But since i've done this i can't get the van to start anymore.
Any suggestions? I am literally open to anything.

*any suggestions that aren't telling me to take it to a mechanic, because i've been to quite a few (like 5) who all tell me if they can't fix it no one can.

? 5 mechanics come up with nothing is hard to compete with on the web. If that bolt really was to purge air out of cooling system and it wasn't worked on involving coolant then burped out air I'd do a pressure test of cooling system to see where it went including if one or more wet spark plugs with coolant or even find it hydraulic locked with coolant? Don't allow that if wet in cylinders that must be solved before more checking and why it now doesn't run then back to finding why it surges probably the same issue,

What exactly does that mean?

Any trouble codes stored in the engine computer? If so, what are the code numbers?
