Radiator Leaks & heater not working

I just had my radiator replaced 3 months ago & it's leaking again but this time it looks like the leaks are coming from 3 or more places and it's leaking a lot of fluid. At first I thought my front axles were leaking because pretty much everything is soaking wet under there and 1 1/2 months ago they replaced my drive shaft with the "updated" one and also had to overhaul my differential replaced ring pinion & all bearings. They also said I could pick the truck up but the gears were still not right.
Last night driving home I turned my heater on high and it only would blow cold air like I had my a/c on & it was making a lot of noise.
What would make my heater do that?
Roadside just towed my truck down to the dealer so they can get to it 1st thing Monday am.
I will say roadside was great it only took 2 hours to get someone out here.
A couple of times with my 04 roadside took 18 hours and longer.
Thanks for your input :angel:

More than likely you have air in the cooling system and a pocket is trapped in the heater core. Thats what was happening to my heater when my headgaskets let go in my truck. Hope they get you back on the road soon.
