How long ago did you install the system? Bubbles are going to find their way out of their hiding places over a week or so. I usually take a pencil with an eraser and tap on fittings and other things with the eraser to dislodge bubbles. Do you have a reservoir or just a fill port?

Both of the above work well. Also make sure the the water level in the res has not dropped below the output barb, or it will keep sucking air in to the loop.

If more and more bubbles are becoming apparent... you may have a tiny leak somewhere.
Once again...

Alot of air will stay in the rad if you don't turn it upside down, they might have dislodged to become visible.

They will eventually move around with the above methods, and if all else fails just pick up and shake it.

In future you should put a fillport after the pump to make sure you get it all out from the beginning.

A couple of time a day turn everything around to dislodge bubbles. After about a week of that, you should be fine. As long as there are no leaks. But a leak big enough to cause bubbles will leave collant somewhere that you can see it.
