thermostat not opening yet. air in the system. let it cool a bit, then give it some revs. or, with it off, slowly open the radiator cap to release the pressure and leave it off for a bit. you can squeeze the lower several times to help push on the thermostat. it will purge. just takes some time, sometimes.

yup, just gotta work it through the system. turn your heater on. when that gets hot, you know it's flowing. this is where the revs help.just rev to about 2500 or so, you can hold it there for a few seconds, let it idle, rev a little bit, let it idle....
