When you bleed the system do you raise the front of the car a few inches? Most people recommend this as it helps get air bubbles out that might not have been able to. When bleeding it do you let the vehcile warm up to operating temp first? This is done to allow the thermostat to open and allow more coolant flow.

If their was a leak, you would smell it, and possibly see fluid leaking through the dash.
