Two thing to look at
1. Did you bleed the coolant system fully when you change the pump.
To do this: Without the engine running and the rad cap off heater full hot and demist, remove the bleed screw by the rad cap pour in coolant till it runs out of the bleed screw hole pour a bit more coolant in to remove as much air as you can, put the bleed screw in by 2 turns (still loose), start the engine (rad cap still off) coolant and air should now come out the bleed screw and there should be a small jet of coolant shooting into the to of the rad. When you're happy all the air is out tighten the bleed screw and if the rad cap.
2. If you don't get a good flow into the rad: Maybe there's a bit of the pump impeller Stuck in the coolant jacket somewhere I've seen this before but they can be hard to find.

How old is ur radiator? You have to change it every 60-80K miles($200 from pelicanparts.com + Labor)...maybe time for new one...also ur coolant sensor might be screwed (30 bux, Ebay.com +Labor)
