    you need to run the car with the radiator cap off, once the vehicle gets hot it will begin to over flow a bit, then at a point the level will go down all at once because the thermostat has opened, once that happens fill with coolant until the level comes all the way up with the fluid circulating, then place the cap on make sure it is locked and make sure the temp stays regular and vehicle is not overheating.
