Have replaced radiator and thermostat

With the motor cold, I would remove the drive belt and try to turn the water pump pulley by hand. It should move freely and only make a gurgling noise like water moving inside the motor but should not make any metal on metal noise if it's working properly. This is likely your cause. The water will only weap out of the pump when the shaft of the pump is turning thus the intermmittent leak when you park.
Also the radiator cap was probably removed to perform the leak check but you have to inspect the radiator cap itself. If the o-rings in the cap are worn you could lose pressure in the system and even though you might not see the liquid coming from the cap it could be shooting out through a rubber hose near the cap. If the water pump checks out I would try a new radiator cap.

Only 2 parts remaining are the thermostat and waterpump. Always start with the thermostat when diagnosing an overheating problem. If the car is overheating constantly under all conditions and coolant is backing up into the reservoir, it's very likely to be the thermostat. If it only overheats at low speed or idling, it's more likely the waterpump.

SOURCE: I have a 1999 Hyundai Tiburon. When driving the car is overheating but when idling the temperature drops. Thought that sounded backwards. The radiator and the fan motor have been replaced already. Cou
Thermostats will stick sometimes. Most are made to open at certain temperatures. In some cases brand new thermostats fail. Try replacing it its pretty cheap probably no more the 10-15 dollars for the part it self its an easy fix also.
