Vehicle over heating, replaced thermostat. Did radiator flush. Resovair still bubbles real high and now it heats up only going up to 2-3miles. How do I know its a air pocket and radiator place said it was removed and how do I know if it didn't already damage my heads also due to heating up or how do I know it is my radiator creating this also

Check for cold spots on the radiator indicating its clogged, water pump is it doing its job pumping coolant thru the engine. Try bleeding it and what happens -If it continues get it block and pressure tested-

Block means -its a chemical test where they can determine if there's exhaust gases in the cooling system

Check if it has an airbleed screw-if so open it up and remove the resevoir bottle cap, now put coolant in it untill it comes out of the airbleed screw then close the screw. Now start it up and put heater at high-let it idle till it comes up to temperature-keep an eye on the resevoir keep it fill at all times, once the upper hose gets too hot-stop you're done
