It sounds like it was just pushing out the air bubbles out of the system.

I see, the temp gage doesn't show it's overheating, but when I stop the car it just bubbles until it cools down. Also when I replaced the coolant bleeder valve because it was leaking, I run the car with the bleeder open and nothing but steam comes out even at operating temp, but still doesn't show it's overheating, and clues why??

I wonder if you have an air lock somewhere in the system that's preventing the antifreeze from flowing in certain areas.

I might try suggesting running with the bleeder valve open until it starts coming out as liquid.
