Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.I will do my best to assist you.
sense the cooling system has been worked on it may now have air in the system.lets try something simple first
bleed it this way
1-remove the radiator/reservoir cap when the engine is cold
2-start the engine and let idle
3-turn the heater on max
4-keep coolant on hand and add it as needed
5-spme coolant may gush out with the air
6-keep doing this until the engine is at operating tempeture and the heater is hot
7-after the coolant settles down and the engine is warm,,install the cap
This may take as long as 20-30 minutes
give it a try..and let me know
the the engine get hot?
i mean ,does it overheat at all?
i am now going to think that sense it has had some stop leak poued into it,,it is posible that the heater core is clogged up.
you could try to back flush the core by switching the heater hoses to where the in is out and out is in[let the coolant run through the cores backwards]..but,i would think if this doesnt work,the core will need to be replaced

there isnt a heater control valve..
if the heater hoses are getting hot,then we know that coolant is going through ,if this is the case then the problem may be the tempeture air door.
if the heater hoses arent getting hot,,then there is no coolant moving,with all you have replaced,there is nothing left other than the hose nipples out of the engine being clogged with lime deposits and/or stop leak.
it sounds as if you have air in the system..
try bleeding it again as i gave you before..
though it is possible for the air door actuator to be opening and closing,to me it is strange that it changes by giving it throttle..
seems like air trapped to me
iif you arent loosing any coolant ,,i wouldnt think it is the head gasket
it sounds as if you have all the bases covered..
the v6 engine doesnt have a belt and not need to replace the chain
