Bleed air from cooling system like this. Remove cap from over flow tank fill with anti freeze to full mark leave cap off start vehicle and let idle and reach operating temp anti freeze will start to back up into the over flow tank this is normal once thermostat starts to open anti freeze level in over flow tank will drop add more anti freeze to full mark then put cap back on. All air will be removed from cooling system.

You might also want to consider a new RADIATOR CAP. Cheap/Easy to install....just make sure the engine has cooled down completely.
