Hi there. When you have an overheating problem after replacing the radiator, it can be caused by several different issues ranging from an obstruction in the coolant lines or heater core, the coolant having air bubbles in the lines, cooling fans not working, the water pump not working correctly or the thermostat not releasing coolant at the right time. It’s a good idea to have a professional mechanic come to your location and complete an overheating inspection before having any repairs done. This will allow them to pinpoint the source of this issue and recommend the right repairs.
