    It started after you changed the radiator? You need to burp the system. One way is here:

    Overheating After Rad. & Timing Belt Replacement

    but there are others. Burp the system repeatedly and when you are sure it's done, burp it all over again because it's not.

    Yup.........and make sure the car is on level ground so that the turbo coolant expansion tank is the highest point in the cooling system.
