Question about 1996 Ford Taurus
from your description you have an air lock. You stated thermostat changed, I presume you just filled up radiator popped cap on and thought that was it?
Well you need to park on level ground, whilst cold remove cap start engine leave to idle until operating temp, keep clear of coolant filler as hopefully it will gurgle, bubble up and flow over then you need to top up with very warm water and anti freeze.
Wait as it may do it again before settling as the air lock will possibly be in your heater Matrix/Core hence cold air.
Good luck and please remember to rate this effort.
