Have you done basics?
Making sure engine fans works?
For fan, open hood, start engine, turn on A/C, go out and make sure elec fan is runnin - if not, that's your problem.

I second the opinion you may have air in the system. If that's not your problem you can always take the thermostat out and put it in a pan of water and heat it on stove and see if it opens at the right temperature. It may be stuck closed.
