sounds like your air locked inside there should be 2 bleeders one by the thermostat and in the front of the engine near the pulleys you will probably need a 5/16 or 8 mm wrench to crack them open do one at a time while running make sure all the air gets out and you get a steady stream of fluid coming out once it is bled or you think all the air is out go inside the car and see if you have constant heat if you do then all the air is out.also turn on the heater while bleeding it.

If you changed the hoses and thermostat and the car is still overheating, then the next thing to look at is the water pump. See if the water pump is leaking water from a vent hole. If it is, then the water pump is defective and will need to be replaced. Sure hope this helped.

when you changed the therm you let air into the system and it will usually cause a air bubble in the heater core you probally should try to burp the system there is usually a plug or a relief valve check with your dealer fro instructions on how to burp the air out of the system try that first befor4e trying to replace the heater core
