Check the coolant level first as it may be low, especially after replacing radiator. Was it overheateing prior to the radiator change? Does the jyard radiator feel the same temp accross? If you feel cold spots the rad is no good. Was the t-stat any good prior? Has the engine been checked for head gasket/intake gasket leaks.
