I changed my thermostat but that radiator symbol still comes on for my 2004 kia Amanti. When you replace the antifreeze do have to prime it someway brcause it doesn't seem to flow like it should.

I've dealt with this vapor-lock issue in multiple ways. One was to put an aspirin in the thermostat to hold it open. When disolved it would work properly. But want it open for a bit so that coolant can flow.
The other was to squeeze the radiator hoses to push coolant and work air into radiator so it could come to top of radiator. Another is to simply run it till warms up, shut it down and ad coolant to the reservoir.

I had heat before i change the thermostat what happened?

You may have trapped air in the coolant system. Take off the radiator cap, turn heater control to high heat, and run the engine till it is fully warmed up and the thermostat has opened. Then shut off car and replace radiator cap after topping up coolant. Heater may work now. Good luck.

My 2004 ford freestar has no heat. how do I add antifreeze or check if it is the thermostat

When the engine is cool, take off the radiator cap and add fluid till full. Also add coolant to the overflow tank if needed
To check the thermostat, leave the radiator cap off, turn heater controls to high heat, and start the engine and run it till at operating temperature (this is to remove air from the system.) Coolant level should drop a bit when the thermostat opens, so you may need to add more. Replace rad. cap when engine is warmed up.
The only way the thermostat would cause no heat is if it were stuck open. So feel the upper radiator hose as the engine warms up. It will be cold or cool till engine starts to warm up-should take about 10-15 minutes, and then the thermostat should start opening, and the upper hose will start getting hot. If the engine takes a long time to warm up, like 30 minutes, the thermostat may be stuck open, needing replacement. If all seems good, check the actuator doors (temperature blend door) on the heater case. The doors have to open properly to let air from the blower motor to pass across the heater core, and then out the vents.
Good luck. If the coolant level was low, that was likely the problem.

I just replace the thermostat in my 1983 ford f150 and the coolant is topped up and my gauge says am over heating does anyone have any ideas

you probably have air trapped in the cooling system. Lave the cap loose and warm up the engine till the thermostat opens and top hose is hot. Shut off engine and tighten cap and keep reservoir to full level. Refill as it sucks back into rad.
