There’s probably air trapped in the cooling system. To purge any air out of the cooling system try this.
Get the engine up to operating temperature. With the engine idling slightly loosen the upper radiator hose clamp. Take a small flat bladed screwdriver and slip this beween the upper radiator hose and the radiator hose neck. Allow the engine to idle until all that comes out of the upper radiator hose is coolant. Retighten the hose clamp.
Ok ill give it a try thanks for all your help!
