I have already found the actual radiator cap to be faulty, the whole spring mech was missing and it was just dumping coolant to the overflow tank. so I replaced that and I also replaced the thermostat. is there an coolant bleeder valve that i'm not seeing or is there another issue I should be considering?

    thermostat has been replaced. did it this morning. it was really easy. still no difference. the car seems to get hot fast but I have no heat. also, it seems that the cooling fans only turn on if
    a) a/c is on.
    or
    b) right after I turn the car OFF.
    I don't understand what the problem is. is there still air in the system? I feel like I got it all out but... Did the heater core go? Maybe there is an obstruction somewhere. I NEED HELP!!! Please email after 500pm unex3007@yahoo.com need tis car fixed asap! Help!
