Question about 2000 Toyota Camry
Toyota are pretty bullet proof but if u are putting water in after 20 miles and there is defiantly no leaks it's got to be going somewhere and the only place is through the engine and out as steam and head gasket will cause overheating , over pressuring . Even if the oil is clean ( not creamy)

Make sure the radiator is clear of debris
Try a different coolant. Stay away from the Red stuff
When changinging the thermostant go for a 180 or less. It sounds like your thermostat open when it really heats up. Get a lower thermostat.

i assume its a 4 cyl?? will this car ever overheat if just sitting idle? when it begins to overheat, hows the heat in the cab? sounds like maybe the radiator is partially clogged or restricted somehow. i would change the radiator cap and make sure the overflow is set to proper level. (incl. radiator level) i wouldnt jump to headgasket just yet, they are pretty durable from what ive seen

So far you did the right things in the right order. If you have a pressure cap (looks like a radiator cap to the rear side of the engine. Dealer $15) change the pressure cap also and then flush the radiator. A sure sign of blockage is when you open the radiator look around inside the top if you see brown or green kind of gunky stuff. Flush the radiator anyway.
If after the radiator is flushed and you still overheat, the next posibility is the head gasket. But don,t worry yet, follow these steps and observations. (this goes for 93 camry V6 also, I have one)

It doesn't overheat with the air off? It sounds like you aren't getting enough airflow thru the radiator. Radiator fans not working or leaves and dirt stuck in the radiator.

Firstly, ensure you have the required 'mixture' of coolant/water (must have required coolant).
Second, I would recommend you re-test all the cooling system sensors again (make sure they're within specifications), in case a new one is faulty.
Third, ensure the new thermostat was of the correct temp setting (they all differ), so that it opens at the required time. Most cooling systems operate within 90 - 100degC.
Fourth, make sure the radiator (and associated hoses) aren't blocked.
If your temp gauge is reading higher than normal, but NOT in the danger zone...then this can be considered normal (especially if you've replaced with new components) and nothing to be concerned about.
However, if the temp gauge IS in the danger zone....then this suggests the coolant is not flowing through the cooling system properly.
If all above components test ok, then it's possible your water pump may not be pumping enough volume.

Testimonial: "I appreciate your help...Maybe I should just relace the water pump, that would be the last thing that I would need to replace."
