Sounds like there's still air in the system. But if not it's possible the head gaskets were installed on the wrong sides of the engine or upside down. If this happens some of the coolant passages are blocked causing it to heat up. HTH. -Jim

You've got air in the cooling system. Use the bleeder valve near the thermostat to get rid of it and all will be well.
