Entire cooling system was replaced except for the radiator?

Was the electric fan and the mechanical fan clutch replaced? If the fan clutch is shot, she will overheat in slow traffic, but turning on the A/C might help. If you turn on the A/C and the temp spikes, then check if the electric fan comes one or is weak and wobbly, that's something else to look at too.

Does the fan clutch pass the pencil test once the engine warms up?

Coolant level OK? Bleeder valves by the firewall leak free?

Does your oil look frothy milky?
