Replace the bad radiator hose first. Second- get you special formulated anti-freeze dye from the auto store and pour it into the radiator. Third- make sure you got all the air pockets out of your system, cause the coolant system won't work with air pockets in it. Fourth- Check for leaks by looking for the colored dye. If it's not the radiator hose, then could possibly be a pin hole in your radiator. Would suggest replacing all the radiator hoses at the same time while you got the coolant system disconnected, cause you don't want to have to come back and replace another hose in a few months.

Testimonial: "Helpful & quick feedback! Thanks! "
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.

If it is fogging your windows, you have a leaking heater core. Dash removal is required to fix it.

Testimonial: "great advice,,but I am not losing antifreeze from my cooling system,"
I had the same problem with the same car...
I replaced the climate control center, (in the dash selector) and this solved the problem. I discovered this by first swapping mine out with a friends who had the same unit. This is an expensive part at the dealership but I now have heat. Hope this helps, I had a couple of long winters driving to work also!
