Did you replace the thermostat as well? That could be your problem. Also make sure your radiator and reservoir are full.

My 05 cobalt just overheated today.. when the warning light came on it was at 260... i had 2 miles to get home.. i thought maybe it was just low and it will be ok... i got home and the temo was at 278. I let it cool down, realized my coolant was low. barely even in the reservoir. My car has 77k on it. A couple months ago i hit a deer and had 5k worth of front end damage. They replaced the radiator and everything surrounding it. Could there be a problem with something they replaced? could it just be low on coolant? What would make my car run out of coolant in 20k miles?!

SOURCE: Water pump on 2005 Chevy Equinox
Water pump is locate on the front center of the engine.
I will rate water pump change as a 7/10 in difficulty scale.
You should check for special tool(s) requirement from the library before you start.
It's a good time to change the drive belt at the same time.
50/50 coolant mix is fine.
If you haul heavy load or in cold climate then bump it up to 60/40 mix
DO NOT FORGET to find or draw the belt routing diagram before you undo the tension.
A 30 second sketch will save you a lot of time.

Could be three things: Hopefully the first...
1. radiator fan not blowing. (most likely)
2. Radiator clogged (not likely)
3. Head gasket blown... (very possible)
If #1, system cannot detect fan not blowing. It may be the fuse or the relay switch, disconnecetd wire at fan, or burned-out fan motor.
If #2, Flush radiator
If #3, you will see WHITE smoke out the tailpipe and excessive water drops.
Your new oil will have a "milky" look (check the oil dipstick). That is water.
When engine is COLD, remove radiator cap and start car. You will notice high-pressure "bubbles" squirt out of the radiator, even before the engine warms up.
I hope it is #1. and that this is helpful.
