When changing coolant did you bleed the system per your manual?
The 180* "T"stat means the motor will get hotter before the radiator and fan will cool it down. If you live in cold Canada it may be OK. But if in more temperate temperatures I would order a 160*.
With the motor warm, look in the top of the radiator, then rev the motor. You want to see turbulence indicating the water pump is working. You don't want to see bubbles, a indication of a bad head gasket.
You can remove the temperature sensor/sender and test it in a pot of heated water.
