The system just needs to get all the air pockets out if you switched everything like you said look around where the radiator hose meets where you put the thermostat in, there should be something on the lines of a little nipple with a 8 mm bolt on it i will have to pull up the exact setup of your Taurus but its the same general concept your car is fine you just have a big air pocket , what else you can do is while its cold right now and the car isnt running is to go take the radiator cap off the radiator and see if the antifreeze is low now that the car has cold down since you last ran it. If so feel it up top it off in the radiator and it might hurp it self and remove the air pocket all on its own... If you need any more help feel free im always on here id be glad to help more in detail once you try that and look under the hood for the bleeder ( the thing with the nipple on it) Also if you could please rate me i would greatly appreciate it.

i dont think water pump failure is the fault this time.Have a look across the top of the engine at heater hoses one of them should have a bleeding screw on it,i think this engine has air in the system[airlock]if not loosen a hose at the top of the engine and start engine [idle]let all the air out make sure to keep topping up with water i think this will solve your problem.adrian;;;;

One of 3 things could cause this, that I know. The thermostat has been installed backwards. The water pump broke soon after install. Due to it being a rebuilt one. And a small clog in the heater core. All of these things are easy to fix.
