Your thermostat or water pump might be the problem...

Or you didn't get the air purged from the cooling system when you filled it back up.

When engine is cooled or carefully open radiator and run it, after engine reaches normal temperature see if water circulates inside radiator, if not, then you have a restriction, thermostat or pump issue. What did you fix?
