Default 2006 Ford Five Hundred Overheating

I have a 06 Five Hundred. It was overheating, replaced water pump and thermostat. It now only overheats when I drive 60mph and I am on the gas. When I let of gas, the heat blows cold air. When I get on the gas the heat blows super hot air. I have pressurized the coolant system and to my knowledge do not have any air pockets. I am stumped. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Sounds like it still has air pockets and requires bleeding out the air.

So I looked in my service manual and it has these directions for bleeding the cooling system: bullets number 3 and 4 in the photo -
