Did you bleed any air out of the cooling system? If so, check the temperature door under the dash. Make sure it's moving to the full heat position. If not the actuator is probably bad. HTH. -Jim

Weak waterpump ??

Sounds like the heater core is still partially clogged. By revving up the engine you're forcing coolant through the restricted heater core passages so you have heat then. HTH. - Jim

First off there's no such thing as a weak water pump. If its not leaking or squeaking its working fine. While it might possibly be heater core it is extremely unlikely since you've flushed it. What is far more likely is that there's still air trapped in the system in spite of attempting to bleed it. Some modern GM cooling systems are extremely tough to fill properly for some reason. You may want to resort to having a shop do it using proper vacuum equipment designed to pull all the air out as it is being filled. I've also heard that filling it while the car is facing uphill helps although I've not actually tried that. Whatever you do, get the air out of the system and I'm pretty sure all your troubles will be over.
