You might still have an air pocket in the engine that is preventing the
fluid from circulating correctly.
Remove the small hose from the reservoir bottle and check to make
sure that there is flow back into the bottle.
If you do not have flow, you either have an air pocket in the engine
or the water pump is not turning.
