Just plays on your mind did you tighten up the bleed screw enough. Got the engine hot squeezed all pipes and watched for leaks so should be good. And the hotter the engine the more likely your going find leaks.

The thermostat was replaced 3 months ago and was a euro car parts one. Can't believe oem would be any better on that part. The only thing not replaced was water pump, so might change that.
