Answers :

May I suggest allowing the engine to become stone cold and then remove the coolant fill pressure cap. Then start the engine and leave the cap off until the thermostat starts circulating water through the radiator and the coolant expands to the reservoir with the cap off. You might see some bubbles form. Once this starts turn the engine off, check to make sure you have the correct amount of coolant and see if that fixed the problem of air pockets in the engine coolant system that you mention. It may take several times of doing this procedure. Of course if the thermostat or pump is bad then this will not help. To test the pump you can run the engine from a cold condition and feel the large upper radiator hose until the thermostat opens up. When it does the hose should get hot to touch. If not then the pump or thermostat may be bad.
Assuming proper fluid level your thermostat sounds like it may be stuck closed (or nearly closed)
\015\012If the radiator has little or no heat to it when your engine gets warm this is probably the case.
