You say the valve is still blowing out steam? The cooling system is purging itself from air pockets which is good, needs to be. I would keep it open until satisfied there is no more air coming out, keeping the overflow tank full of coolant so it can draw it in so the system is staying full. I would think that valve would be able to close after your done. Have the heater set on hot, make sure you are getting heat, meaning that it is an indication that the air pockets are getting purged out. And do the fans turn on?
