Install the coolant slowly with the bolts not tightened on the thermostat housing. When coolant is seen at the therm. housing, tighten the mounting bolts. That should insure that the engine is full of coolant.
Check to coolant level after it cools off and check to see if coolant-water mixture is correct. If those are ok. You could have to much air in the coolant system. Most radiator caps will automatically vent the air out of the coolant system. It could be as simple as a coolant cap that gone bad. Or you may have a air bleed valve on it and you need to bleed the air out manually. To bleed it you will have to crank engine and get it warm. Touch top radiator hose to see if its warm. If not then the thermostat has not opened yet. That could also be the problem. After it gets warm open the bleeder valve if equipped and bleed all the air out. Once the steam and hot air from the valve starts to be gone and pure coolant coming from the valve. You have successfully bleed the coolant system. Cool engine back off and check coolant level once more. Hope this helps.
I believe it's on the drives side at the fire wall by the hood hinge. It's actually called a degas bottle because coolant flows through it under pressure to onstantly bleed air from the system. Be sure to tighten it as the cap states so it does not leak air in.
There is a hose on the side of the coolant resevoir that has a straight blade screwdriver fitting in it. Open the fitting and this will bleed the heads on the LS. Without opening this you will never get the air out of the head, trust me.
