Unhappy Radiator flush now coolant res. won't fill up.

I did a radiator flush a while back and noticed that the looking at the fill tank the right side won't fill up. But when Deus003 and I flushed his, his did, so what did I do so that it won't fill?

Thanks everyone.

When I tried that it just overflowed, I even tried it with the engine on and Dues003 in the car and on the gas. When he pushed the gas it would lower, but when he let off it overflowed.

I think you need to bleed out the air.

Coolant Fill Procedure:
1. Disconnect the heater hose at the right or front of the engine.

2. Remove the T-stat and housing.

3. Fill the engine with coolant mixture until it is observed at the engine side heater hose connection.

4. Reconnect the heater hose and install the T-stat and housing.

5. Fill the degas bottle to the fill mark.

6. Run engine until it reaches normal temp and select MAX blower speed on the climate system.
