and also the whole radiator is cool except the side where the top hose runs into it.

sounds like thermostat man. change it and pay attention to how its in there. it goes cone side up. spring down. and you see in the pic. this one has a tiny little flapper thing. it has to be positioned right if yours has one. i doubt it does but it may be bad brand new. test it in a pot of boiling water.

oh and when youre done and you put it all back together leave radiator cap off and fill radiator. let it sit and run..with the heater on. air bubbles will start coming out then water will come out. keep an eye on temp. gauge and wait on the thermostat to open. it should be obvious. water level will drop quite a bit. fill with water again if needed til full. no bubbles no air. heat should get warm too.
