You have air in it still. Park it on an incline front facing up or jack the front up and let it idle with the cap off. Eventually all the air will work it's way out then fill it up. I put RTV around that hose but then again mine was not leaking.

FWIW, there's no need to have the front end inclined/jacked up to get the air out. It's certainly not recommended in the FSM and I've never done it. Just take the rad cap off and run the engine until it stops spitting coolant, then top it off.

If there is air in the heater core that gets it out. Besides that we all know air escapes to the highest point.

I forgot to mention to put a bucket under the area where the radiator cap is because some will come out. That is supposed to happen. When you stop seeing air bubbles come up it's probably done burping.

Highlonesome says he uses a turkey baster and siphons the fluid coming out and puts it into the overflow.
