Yes the issue is most likely an air block, jack the front of the truck up as far as you can, fill the recovery bottle and run the engine for about 10 min, then shut down and run cold water over the radiator, this should purge the air, recheck the recovery tank and refill as ness.

you could have a bad hose, check the upper and lower hoses and hake sure they are not caving in on themselves. sounds like it could either be that or you might have something cloging the hoses. run the engine with the hood open so you have the pressure build up, and look at both raditior hoses. see if they are bulging out as pressuer gets built, or if they cave in .

Sometimes after changing the coolant, people (like me) decided to fill the radiator ... only to find the car overheated like a candle.
When you fill the car, DO NOT fill the radiator first. Pull the top hose off, and fill the engine (via the hose) with coolant. Once that's full, shove the hose on and then top off the radiator.
Solved the problem for me. Has never overheated since.
