Q: radiator fill on 2000 Lincoln LS

What is the best way to fill the radiator? When I fill it through the plastic bottle it doesnt fill the radiator instead I end up with a giant air pocket.There is no cap on the radiator. There is a plastic cap near the top of the thermastat. Iam not sure if that would be the place,I dont want to break the plastic . I thought I would ask how first. It might turn out cheaper. The car is a Lincoln LS 3.9 2000. Thank you.

Please refer to the answer I have provided you in your previous asking of this question.

You do purge air and fill coolant inside the reservoir and only the reservoir.
