with no heat it is either an air block or your new thermostat is bad. make sure you bleed the system well. there are 2 bleeder screws you need to use.

above the water pump toward the front of the motor. there is a heater hose attached to the fitting. the bleeder is a 7mm bolt that you just loosen up and let air escape until coolant comes out.

Thanks Roy: I located one bleeder screw, upper left radiator, where is the other one? Thanks again
