    Make sure there are no air pockets in the coolant. There should be a bleeder valve on the water outlet loosen it and start the car and run it while putting coolant in. If there is. Pocket it will do that.

    there is no bleeder on a b16a vtec, and ive went threw and made sure all the air was out, but im thinking the head gasket blowed in between cylinders.

    Change your radiator cap.
    Did you bleed it with the engine cold or hot? Did you have the temperature control on max heat?

    If you really suspect its the head gasket read on

    Hope that helps.
