Maybe you need a new radiator cap for one, and did you purge the cooling system from the air pockets after refilling? If not here is a video on how to do that. Just one thing with this video, put the radiator cap back on when your done while the engine is still running... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xeTgmdRkQtY
