If thermostat was re-installed correctly then I'd say, remove rad cap, start engine, turn heat on & let coolant circulate for a while with cap off to remove air-locks in system. Rev the engine up slightly, once in a while to increase the flow through the system. I usually let the rad fan come on 2 or 3 times before I put cap back on, just to be sure all air is out of the system. Let me know if that does it.

I have a 1992 gmc sierra with a 350 rocket 5.7L automatic 4x4 truck. I just replaced the thermostat and made sure the anti freeze was full. But it still won't throw heat. And after I replaced the...

It's running cooler because the thermostat is opening too soon. As far as the heat goes, let it warm up to operating temperature, turn on the heat full blast and feel the temperature of the hoses going to the core.
1- both cool- engine not reaching operating temperature or the system needs to be bled of air
2- one noticeably cooler than the other- clogged core; you could try backflushing, or replace it.
3- both equally hot to the touch, where you can barely touch them- everything is good on the liquid end- look at your blend door in the heater box.

Over heating when driving

first check your collant level. Second make sure your engine fan turn on once the car warms up. But usually you may be having a bad thermostat so you may wanna replace it.
