If you have change the radiator , then check the thermostat for its temperature while running . then try to change the engine oil it could be one of the reasons that your car is having a overheat problem.

Assuming the fuses are fine the most likely culprit is one of 3 fan relays located on the red cradle at the bottom of you rad. I had the same problem and repalced all 3 seeing as they are a pain to access

The oil has to be very old and contaminated to cause any degree of overheating, so I don't think that is your problem.
The most common overheating problem with the Northstar engine is a blocked purge line(small hose).The purge line is designed to purge air out of the cooling system.
There is a small diameter hose coming from near the top of the coolant tank (not the cap) ,this is the purge line.
With the engine idling,pull the purge line from the tank,if there is no coolant flow from this small hose,it is blocked and this will cause overheating.If the hose is clear, check for blockage at the nipple on the tank.Or trace the hose back until you find the blockage.The hose goes in to the engine to a crossover and comes out the other side to near the thermostat housing,the blockage may be there.
