To bleed remove cap to over flow reservoir fill with anti freeze to full mark, leave cap off and start vehicle and let idle once vehicle starts to reach operating temperature thermostat will start to open and anti freeze level in over flow reservoir will drop add more anti freeze to full mark then put cap back on. All air will be bleed from system.

thank u guys I will try this in the morning first thing , but does anyone think the water pump could b the issue
