Did you put the thermostat in up side down? On second thought, maybe it's air locked.

If it get hot that fast you either have an air pocket, a badly plugged radiator or a blown head gasket, unless you did put the thermostat in backwards.

Im thinking water pump if it ran hot before you changed radiator and thermostat


But ,tinnisshoe,is all so correct,if you ran it hot,it may have damaged your head gasket from having a bad water pump.
