my guess is the thermostat if you just replaced the thermostat then it might be an air pocket in the cooling system solved by taking the cap off the overflow tank squeezing the radiator hose going to the thermostat housing until the water pressure opens the hose in your hand this forces your thermostat open. if you decide to replace the thermostat yourself do the same as above to make sure all air is out of your cooling system.
