Try doing a search for "burping" on the message board. I am almost willing to be that you will find what you need.
I hope this helps.
How many miles are on it and do you know when the water pump was replaced, if ever. If it turns out to be your pump you should consider changing the following components while you are having that done: Timing belt and tensioner, oil pump seal and crank seal, cam seals, both idler pulleys, and both belts.

Also, there is a burp screw on the passenger side of the radiator. If you did not open this, more then likely, there's still air in the system.

Turn your car on with the heater on full blast. Fill the radiator untill full and let car run untill the thermostat opens. You should see the water level go down. Remove the burp screw and then fill to capacity. Some people say you should have th front end of the vehicle elivated. You could put it on jackstands or ramps if you choose.
Hope this helps.
