I cant get much hot air blowing out of my heater. It seems when i slow down or come to a complete stop it has hot air but when im moving its just cold air. I just put a new radiator, new hoses and thermostat. Does any one have any ideas on a possible solution besides wearin 3 layers of clothes.? Thanks in advance!

Sounds like a clogged heater core. Have you tried flushing it?

If you just installed a new radiator etc you could still have air trapped in the heater core.

Not likely. The heater core is below the top radiator hose.

The OP has a vent door problem.
