YOU MIGHT HAVE CLOGED RADITOR OR NEED TO REPLACE WATER PUMP.

Faulty water pump, clogged cooling jackets in the engine, clogged radiator, a worn out collapsing lower radiator hose, or even a misrouted serpentine belt are all possibilities. HTH. -Jim

And make sure the air pockets are bled from the cooling system when re-filling...

agree with rowefast the biggest problem with cars these days is the radiator sits lower compare to older cars therefore anytime u service the coolant u need to bleed the air out of system otherwise it will make u its overheating and some cars takes longer than others..
