sounds like you have air in the line somewhere. take it home, let it cool off and bleed the system

how do i beed my system...is there a write up
Let it cool down, loosen the 12mm bleeder on the head, fill the radiator till a bubble free stream comes out of the bleeder. Fill the overflow to the max mark and let the car run with the radiator cap off until your thermostat opens up(the cooling fan should come on at least twice) and the air should bubble out. Check the fluid in the radiator and put the cap back on.

let the car cool down. open up the bleeder and let the car run for a while. stop when you see just water coming off. you might also want to turn your heater on. might have a air bubble in there too.

how long do i run it for and i cant get a hold of coolent right now all the parts stores are closed
run it until the fan kicks on twice, that's how you know the thermostat has opened up. It can take 15-20 min sometimes for it warm up fully and open up
