have you checked or replaced the coolant temp sensor? should be connected to the thermostat housing. do you have pressure in the hoses? are you sure the engine had antifreeze? i have overheated and emptied my engine of all the antifreeze , after i filled the radiator and reserve you need to make sure the level goes down and enters the engine, if the hoses get warn or hot this would indicate proper flow, and the hoses should have some pressure buildup as well. hope that helps.
