Is the water pump good? Getting all the trapped air out can be a bit hard.

I would make sure you know the bleed procedure to a T and maybe have the pump checked and the system pressure tested.

Still sounds like air in the system, get the front up in the air and bleed it again. You should be getting air out not just releasing pressure.
