It may be possible. I ran into this one time. The person flushed there system and put the regular Green anti-freeze in it. The vehicle started overheating, they changed the thermostat and radiator. Still overheated they called me and I checked the system ran vehicle to see if the was a possibility of an air pocket that was causing the over heating so I then reflushed system and put correct anti-freeze in it and no more overheating.

I would suggest you jack up vehicle run vehicle for a while and then turn vehicle off let cool check coolant if low fill and see what happens. Just don't let vehicle overheat to point of possible damage.

Jacking up vehicle will help any air pockets to work to the top or highest point of engine
