Exclamation Overheating, no cirrculation, No hot AC

Hey guys I'm having a REALLY big problem. My 1999 Ford Mustang v6 3.8L is overheating strangely. It's been overheating when I drive less than a mile. I added antifreeze, changed the thermostat, put a stop leak treatment in the radiator, there are no leaks either, also there is no hot air coming out of the AC, it can't be the water pump either because it was changed about 4 months ago. I've been looking around the web and heard it may be the heater core. Any suggestions or other compontents that it may be? Thanks!

That stop leak crap is pretty much useless and is known to also clog up a cooling system. It' could be that your heater core is clogged. Are you experiencing any smoke from the exhaust? Check your oil to see it it has bubbles from coolant in it as well. Could be a blown headgasket.

no there's no smoke coming out from the exhaust, the oil is fine as well. Could air in the system cause this?

Yep. Find the high point bleed. Fill it from there. Squeeze the lower hose until there is no more air in the system.

Sno. push the goddamn button!!!

There should be a cap or plug or something at the highest point of your cooling system.

oh ok thanks, one more thing though, when I flush it with water does it go inside the motor or do i disconnect the upper hose?
