Did you leave enough room in the over fill tank for this to happen because it is going to backup before the thermostat opens that is why you have to leave enough room in the tank for this to happen. Just fill to fill mark with anti freeze in over flow tank and leave cap off once t- stat opens anti freeze level will drop in tank add more anti freeze to fill mark then put cap back on.
