Hi, are you sure the head hasn't gone? if not flush and clean the raditor and hoses, if problem persists pour a bottle of 'k-seal' into your rad tank this will fix any leaks in your coolant system

Check thermostat first. Maybe not the problem but new thermostat and housing gasket are very cheap and with this many miles it wouldn't hurt to install new one anyway. Just a little labor.

Does it run LIKE it is overheating? (rough, high/low idle, etc.)? Have you recently had work done to the car, specifically the cooling system? Have you checked the overflow/surge tank to see if it is at the proper level? (check when cold). Does your heater work when it is 'overheating'? Possible reasons for your symptoms are (in no particular order) air in the system (improper filling of system when thermostats installed), improper installation of the thermostats, low coolant level, defective coolant sensor or a defective gauge. Blockage in the radiator, or heater core is another possibility.

Overheating after driving three miles

I would replace the thermostat. Its a cheap fix and most likely the issue. If you replace the thermostat and are still overheating then you may have a more serious issue. But going 3 miles and overheating sound like the thermostat is not opening up at operating temperature.

My trailblazer keeps overheating and I'm not sure why. I have already replaced the radiator, water pump, thermostat, and clutch fan. Is there anything else I can do?

There may be an obstruction in one of the hoses, there may be an air pocket in the system somewhere.
Are you sure there is actually an overheating going on? Maybe it's a bad temperature sensor or temperature gauge stepper motor.

I've had problems with Datsun (later Nissan) engines hanging the closed thermostat until it boiled, then the thermostat released and operated normally. If you increase the small vent hole in the thermostat valve plate a small amount, the problem disappears. It seems that steam from engine operation gathers behind the thermostat sensing bulb and delays opening. The increase in vent hole size lets the steam through and allows the hot water to open the valve. Hope this helps!

Coolant bizarre behavior

if car doesn't run hot with no may be air-locking system when installing thermostat. I always fill the engine block up to the thermostat housing to make sure that engine is full of fluid ..then install thermostat...spring facing down..thenfill radiator making sure car is running so as not to air lock system until top hose gets warm ,showing that your thermostat opened

Try flipping the Thermostat over. Pointed end should point towards radiator (output side)
