    fill your shit up with water and coolant then bleed the head.

    some models have a bleeder right above where the front (upper) coolant hose meets the head, your may not

    leave the cap off, let the car warm up till thermo opens and just keep the radiator filled the whole time...
    that should get the air out

    hondas get a bouncing idle when coolant is low
    it could also be your FITV or IAC, but make sure all the air is out of the system first
