Exclamation Overheating After Radiator Install?? Help!

Hey, I installed a new GMS aluminum radiator yesterday in my 03 WRX, as my oem had a crack in it. After the install I'm now overheating after a brief drive. I tried turning the heater on but I don't have any heat. Does this sound like the thermostat sticking or something. I can't see why it would be overheating now.
Thanks

I think I'm getting there. I'm burping it again. I may not have done it enough times. I finally got heat while ago and the temp started lowering. I'm going to check the level again in a few when it cools off and add some more.
I'll keep an update.
Thanks

ok, I got it. It helps when you fill the radiator up all the way I had also installed an inlet pipe so I was kind of freaked out at first. Live and learn I guess.
Thanks, thread closed!
