It could be a faulty thermostat. Did it do the same thing before u replaced the t-stat? It sounds like it's sticking closed, then all of a sudden it opens, coolant flows correctly. I'd consider changing it again. Check to make sure parts store is giving u the correct temperature thermostat also. Maybe it's too high for your Ford, delaying the opening.

It sound like you have a block or plug up heater.If you just used a garden hose that is not a flush .A reel flush is called a power flush it used about 150lb. of air&water mix. Find a Radiator shop to do this. as far as your temp. going up and down you may have an air trap in eng,an radiator run car for 20min without the cap on. I have been doing Radiator work over 34 years

Chevy made some weak intake gaskets on 3.1 and 3.4. My guess is that the intake gasket is weak and/or leaking and it is letting pressure out somewhere. At idle maybe the system pressure is to little to push hot coolant into the heater core.
