there are a few possibilities.. first could have put the thermostat in upside down ..

second ..your radiator is most likely clogged ... with the car off and engine cold drain the radiator ( a small valve on the bottom of rad..turn and drain ..then fill back with water and add a radiator flush product..see of this helps

. You can also try ( with engine cold ) taking off the radiator cap ..starting the engine..and after 5-10 minutes seeing if water rushes by the opening ..if not is clogged .

Last but not least your water pump may be going out,,and or your water pump/fan belt is loose ...

good luck ..`
