Was this issue present BEFORE the Thermostat and Cap replacement? If YES....You either have an internal coolant leak.....eg......Cracks or blown head gasket.....or external leak ...eg...hoses Radiator heater core.,....etc. Both require a Cooling System Pressure Test. Did you notice any clouds of white smoke coming out of the exhaust pipe when the engine is running?
