Turn all other rads off and just have the cold one on if there is any air in the pipework this wil force it out

thanks for that comment regarding turning the other rads off its working now thanks alot
Balance system up,,, as a rule of thumb upstairs rads makesure valves on flow (pipe that gets hot first) to rads are fully open and the opposite side lockshield/return are closed off then opened quarter to half a turn.
Downstairs open both sides fully. if some of downstairs struggle turn down the lockshield a bit at a time on the ones that are ok
