Couple days ago I noticed that when I was driving my 02 and came to a stop light, heat on full blast would go cool. Immediately after the light turned green and started driving again the heat was back to normal. This has happened a couple of times since. Heater core going out? I installed a new aluminum koyo radiator about a month (2200 miles) ago and everything went smoothly, burped the system and haven't had any issues since. No overheating or leaking or anything weird, just heat blowing cool.

You completely flushed the coolant and didn't mix types?

I'd suspect a heater core clog, but I'd investigate why. It's uncommon on aluminum block aluminum head vehicle.

Heater cores are just cabin-mounted radiators. I'd suspect either an air pocket or a fault in the cabin air selector system. Pressure test the system to be certain there are no leaks, and go from there.
