recheck your connections a new radiator will not give you the issue you are having unless you overheated and the electrical connections are still wet.

nothing wet let it sit over night tried bleeding the system a few air bubbles but nothing other the that.

tried stating it and it the idle shoots to 3,000 then want to stall out unless im on the gas
