Did you have the radiator removed from the vehicle, then flushed, or was it done w/out removing it? If it was done w/out removing it, it was not flushed properly or thoroughly. Regardless of being flushed in or out of the vehicle, the engine block has a drain plug that should be removed, and it too should be flushed. If you had it flushed properly, and the correct amount and mix of coolant replaced, you should be able to drive for at least a couple of years before a coolant change would be needed again, and longer than that before you would see rust in the system. Whoever did the work did a #$(* job. They should provide another complete flush and new coolant for no additional charge, as you already paid for it, and that is not what you got. Once properly flushed to remove all rust and sediment, you should not have any overheating problem. Also note that a plugged up heater core can cause no heat in the passenger compartment.
