You need to run a pressure test and if there is no leaks bleed the cooling system

Supposed to self bleed thru small hose ontop of bottle. Check to see it's not plugged. Some people perform bleeds by raising front of car so bottle is highest point on motor compartment then run until hot and let cool down cold. Done. Check level of coolant in bottle and drive.
