Engine Cooling problem
1996 Volvo 850 Two Wheel Drive Manual

Have just changed the radiator, however appears system is airlocked, have tried the usual ie running the engine with heater running etc but no joy. Only way to stop car overheating is to run the car with the heater on full blast, not a great idea. Am I missing something, I am assuming that it is airlocked is there a seperate point to bleed the cooling system,
or could it be something else.

Help please
