Any ideas please?

Hello all just a quick question for you I have a Scenic I 1.9 RT DT 1997
I've just done a head gasket replacement had to have the head skimmed pressure tested as expected and now i've finished BUT
I started the engine it ran fine,
took for test drive got back water spewing out of expansion tank boiling up like mad I had bled the coolant system but it just won't stay in and what comes out is oily from before head gasket was done!
1st thing I tried was removing thermostat but no good!
bled system again but still boiling up,
I've looked in Haynes and it recommends flushing or reverse flushing the system would anyone else have any other sugestions other than taking it down a country lane and burning out!

Currently in BORO-PIKE's garage:
Scenic 1 1.9 RTDT
