Had the dealer replace the radiator and thermostat. Now I have no heat at idle in the cab. If you take the car off idle you start feeling the heat right away. The dealer has changed out the thermostat two times to fix the problem and radiator cap. They also replaced timing belt and water pump for my time and trouble.
Do you
have the same problem?

Did they try to bleed the system of any air that could be in it?

They said they did. They what to try lifting the front of the car up and leave it sit over night to try and get the air out. If there is any air in it. Does it matter if it was an aftermarket radiator?
