First, if the cooling system was empty when you did the work, refill the radiator to see if it levels out and stays full. If it doesn't and still uses coolant, check for leaks and pay attention to see if there is white smoke from the exhaust. If there is, you may have a bad head gasket.

Let me know what you find.
