Remove cap to anti freeze over flow tank fill with anti freeze to full mark leave cap off and start vehicle and let idle anti freeze level in tank will rise slightly this is normal once thermostat starts to open anti freeze level in tank will drop add more anti freeze back to full mark then put cap back on. That should do it.
