Question radiator fluid

Hi guys..My question today is How to get all the radiator antifreeze in your radiator. i just replace the water pump on my e46 and I had to drain the radiator and now that everything's installed is not possible that its only taking not even half a gallon of antifreeze...i just dont wanna drive it like this 'cause I know that it needs more than that!! how can I make the fluid go down in the plastic tank so that I can pour more.....?

Here you go


Follow that.

Basically you forgot to loosen the screw near the radiator cap, and skipped the bleeding process.
