325i overheating

My radiator busted so I replaced the radiator and the thermostat, put all of the antifreeze back in and I'm still having an issue of it overheating.

Yes I believe so, I left the cap off and let it run, a few air bubbles came out, after that I let it run for another 10 minutes and no more came out.

I don't know how your interior cabin heat is controlled. Were your hot water valves fully open? I don't know what years NewTIS.info covers but it has fill and vent procedures. Search there.

Welcome to Bimmerfest! I moved your question to our E36 3 Series forum, you'll get more help in here. If you search around I am sure you will find a procedure on how to bleed the cooling system. This is a good start -
