I just completely take the bleed screw out, and let the water flow, it will make a mess, until that stream of water quits bubbling. Gently replace, and tighten the bleed screw, and turkey baste, or syphon excess coolant out of the expansion tank, and continue to monitor the level every day when engine is cold, you will likely be a little low a couple of times as you check it each day, but keep filling so that the float is flush with the filler rim, and you will be fine.
