But the sounds at start up should not be there and lead me to believe there is still air trapped (possibly in the heater core).
I trust you know what you are doing filling the cooling system and I admit it is an oddity.
Are you sure you should be able to feel/hear the coolant boiling in that hose? I never noticed before. I have to use the vacuum method you mentioned. If this doesn't work I'm yanking the heads off.
