You will have to go to the auto store and buy an air bleed kit. It sounds like you have a large air pocket within the system.

Was able to get it looked at today and bled air out. Drove it around for a while and did not run hot. Going to take it further tomorrow to see if that was the only problem! Thank you!

A compression test will determine which cylinders are leaking, usually if you have a cracked block , one reading will be low, if 2 readings low usually the head gasket is suspect. If head gasket is blown, usually you will have bubbles in radiator with cap off, open only when cold, let engine warm up then look for bubbles, also white smoke (steam) present at exhaust even on a warm day.

My car has anew radatior a d cap ibeluev there might be a blockageintheexhaust port or need to figure out if i have ablown head gasket and myheads need tobedone possibly warped there is no. Water intheoil

Mirai, get yourself a block tester kit from your local auto store. Will run you about $30. That will let you know if you have a bad head gasket. Here's a short video on how to do the test............................. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YY2w2QvwAVo
