I would say either the thermostat is a poor quality replacement part. Or the vehicle has a flow problem such as worn water pump impelars or a resticted radiator. The last thing could be a large air pocket which is possible if the proper fill and bleed procedure wasnt followed with the thermostat replacement

Hold the garden hose tightly to the outlet of the core " bottom hose" have someone turn the hose on hi till clean water freely runs out the other tube, reassemble worked great for me after thermostat did not help
