it is not safe to repair this part, if it fails and you loose your coolant the engine is ruined very quickly from overheating, replace it.

Did you start engine when cool, radiator cap off, and heater on when you refilled system after thermostat change? I will normally allow coolant to circulate with cap off for at least, 2 or 3 times rad fan comes on & off, before I will put rad cap back on, and always make sure heater is on when doing it, and top up rad as needed while doing it. Are you 100% sure thermostat is in correct? Water pump may be bad, but I'd check everything else good first. Just looking in rad while engine running from cool & watching temperature gauge, for thermostat to open, which should show more flow in rad. What was original problem anyway?

Why was radiator replaced?Did it have heat before ? If it was plugged, the heater core may also be plugged. Try flushing it with a water hose in both directions. I dont know why the botton radiator hose would be cold, the radiator should be a uniform temp and the air coming through the radiator should be HOT, when the engine is at operating temp. What condition was the old coolant? if it was rusty, the water pump may have lower flow than normal.

I dont know what its called, but i know what you're talking about, but you'll probably have to cut if off of the head, as it melts to it. These deteriorate quickly, and need replaced. You will have to purchase it from a dealership as parts stores dont carry it. Or try a junk yard, but chances are its as bad as the one you already have. Dont let them give you straight heater hose either, it will kink, some tard gave me some said it'd work, after 10 minutes of telling him it would kink, and taking it home and tryin it, it kinked. Bad idea.
