    what do you show for pressure on the boiler? the gage behind the circ?
    does the water feeder work? is it valved on?
    why the bucket under the circ?
    do you leak there?
    the circ looks old and crusty, if leaking there, it could be water out, or it could be air in,
    is that circ pumping into, or out of the boiler there?
    post one more distant pic showing from the circ up to the expansion tank

    This problem as described is going to continue.
    You have air getting into the system. How is the air getting in?

    Not sure.

    The leak, no matter how small needs to be found. If it is not obvious from a puddle of water showing. Then the air is probably getting in by the failed or failing hy-vents.

    Also, the air scoop above your expansion tank isn't working. Change it to a micro-bubble air separator. When you change it, change the expansion tank too. It looks like its' showing its' age.
    After all this is done your air problems will go away. The system will heat better and quieter.
