If it wasn't doing that before you replaced the gaskets-Try bleeding the cooling system

There two small screws one on the bypass and one on the thermostat housing I opened them and antifreeze came out for a few seconds then close them is that correct or they shoud be open for a longer while or is there another way to bleed the cooling sytem
