RE: overheating
you may have an air pocket trapped somewhere in your coolant system or something like trash clogging your heater core

RE: overheating
Good point there sandman but I have to ask why these parts were replaced and if the problem existed before the work or only afterward?

This is important because blown head gaskets are common enough, which may have been the original problem. You can also have an overheating issue if the cam belt is not in proper time.

Just in case it is an air pocket you may want to disconnect the top most heater hose and slowly continue to fill the coolant, then put it back together and see what happens. If the heater gets hot inside the car then the system is usually free of air.

Let us know what you find.
