Uh, I also am a n00b, but I hate to see you left hanging, so here's my two cents: I think your water pump (coolant pump) is bad. Big job, but that's my guess... Good luck, bro.

Dude, dis problem is one I don't pray my enemies shld have( or y not? enemies right?).
What i usually do after bleeding is to use a hose & suck out excess water till it gets to water mark.
Also check the water pump, impeller blades cld have corroded.
Check dat fans blow in right direcn.
If fan isn't on a relay, now wld be a good time to install one.
How "old" is dis engine anyway? (mileage)
I sincerely hope the gasket, worse top cylinder is ok.
Hola back.
