I have overheating issues please help

My car is over heating.. The heater will blow, however, the air is cold! I have recently replaced the radiator and thermostat... I've been told that there may be an air bubble in the line and I have to jack the car up above the core and let it run with the radiator cap off to correct the problem. How will I know if the bubble is out. Also, if this doesn't work, what else could it be. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey bro ,make sure the thermostat is not stuck closed ,and maybe it should be changed along with new coolant ,also check inside for leaks from the heater core.
