[200q20v] boiling noises from 20vt head(whoops)

Okay, if I can actually REMEMBER to put in the second part:

I noticed the coolant tank was every-so-slightly below what it should 
be, so topped it off with a little water, no more than half a 
cup(anal anyone?)  I take the car for a spin after cleaning oil out 
of the spark plug holes/connectors, air filter, and oil change.  Get 
back, turn off the car, walk around in front, and notice a rather 
loud gurgling/boiling noise

I've had this problem on and off and I want to get rid of whatever is 
causing it right away; I suspect there's a large air pocket, but I 
have no idea how to eliminate it; I've already tried disconnecting 
the overflow line and filling the system from there; it did nothing 
for the problem.

Any suggestions?


PS:set screw for the filter housing refuses to go in.  I've tried 
everything I can think of; there's nothing in the way, but the damn 
screw just won't go in.  This leaves one corner of the airbox sorta 
willy-nilly.  Ideas?
