if the coolant is full, it is possible there is air in the system, hopefully. with all that new work, the only thing left is the water pump. If I were you though, I would probably do a combustion leak test. the kit is about 40 bucks, and lots of youtube vids on how to do it. if you fail the test, you have a bad head gasket.

I agree with mike above post, he knows what he's talking about. But how high past mid-gauge? Just a little?... ¾ up? In red?
