Check to see if there is white smoke coming from the exhaust tail pipe. If there is then there is a blown head gasket. Also it sounds like there is air in the cooling system for the heater core not to be heating up. Try purging the cooling system from the air pockets. Here is a video on how to do that... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUpXgAJ1gjU
