You would need to bleed the air pockets out of the cooling system, by having the radiator cap off, engine running. Let it warm up to operating temp. but do not be revving it up or you will get a shower. Coolant may push out the radiator witch is fine, that would be the air pockets working their way out. Keep filling as the coolant level drops in the radiator, until full. Put the radiator cap on while the engine is still running. Then you can shut it off.
