I believe you may still have trapped air in the system. You have to bleed the air again and again to get it all out, it can interfere with circulation. The best way to bleed air or burp radiator is to park the car facing uphill with the engine running, and keep a funnel in the radiator to refill coolant as it drops. Aftrwards when you run the car and see it overheating, feel the radiator hoses for sponginess, that is a sign of restricted circulation.

Are the radiator cooling fans actually coming on? HTH. -Jim
