    Check for circulation. If you have circulation, burp the system. If not, then suspect thermostat. You'll be burping the system anyway, either case.

    burp by pouring directly into the top pipe of the radiator?

    Overheating problem

    Let car go stone cold. Keep engine off. Open turbo reservoir cap, and squeeze top hose to release air. Repeat until the cows come home. Then repeat some more.

    Turn motor on, stay away from fans at all times (!!!!) and repeat again.
