hi its sound like you done the same mistake i did when refilling the coolant you need to put the heater switch on hot, because it opens the heater matrix up and you have undo the pipe that comes out of the heater (there are 2 pipes above the drivers manifold) start filling up the coolant till the coolant starts to come out of the pipe, reconnect the pipe then continue to fill up
