Make sure that the gasket is put in right. If put in wrong, it can keep the thermostat from opening. Also make sure that you put the thermostat in the right. The sensor coil or slug goes toward the engine. The thermostat should be stamped showing the proper direction. I would go ahead and buy a new one just to be sure. They are cheap.
about 10-20bucks ez fix buy a new thermastat replace it, if that doesnt work ,then get a coolant flush....if you need help locating the thermastat.. go to ask.com and ask where is the thermastat on """"""""""""///(your veh)
check the coolant level and make sure you have enough antifreeze and also the thermastat may need to be changed but check the coolant level first and also let the car run to temp while adding coolant to make sure you get all air bubbles out because the thermastat will not open if there is bubbles in the system
first of all I would make sure the car has proper amount of coolant and you are right it is very possible you have an air pocket in the system also ask your self did you change the thermastat after you did the heater core when the car is cold make sure there is coolant at the cold mark on the reservior bottle because you might not have enough coolant then start the car and get it up to temp and if the coolant goes not go up to the hot mark when the car gets to temp you do not have enought coolant just keep adding coolant and you will see the bubble after the thermastat opens
