In brief: A different tooth

A tooth that has had a root canal can fail but the symptoms will be pressure or throbbing.
If you are having hot and cold sensitivity it is most likely a different tooth.

In brief: Adjacent teeth

After root canal therapy is completed successfully on a tooth that tooth will no longer feel hot and cold sensitive.
Have the teeth around that tooth checked.
