Question about 1998 Volkswagen Beetle
It is actually more difficult to put coolant back in that many think. You likely have an air pocket. You have to put the fluid in then run the engine waiting for the thermostat to open, then add more coolant to top it off before putting the cap on. then make sure the overflow bottle is filled to half and watch that weekly so that it never gets low enough to start siphoning the radiator.

If you haven't replaced your original water pump which has a plastic impeller then I suggest you upgrade to an aftermarket metal impeller one. The shaft that connects the impeller to the pulley has broken and slipping specially at higher engine speed. Also if a cooling service was done recently there could still be air in the system and needs to be primed properly.
