Hi! Was the thermostat and other items replaced due to this overheating? you say coolant level full? maybe your header tank is full but the system isn't? Try bleeding the system. From cold, start the engine with radiator/header tank cap OFF stay with the vehicle and have some very warm water handy. DON'T look over the filler but watch it as the car gets to operating temperature if the water drops drastically top it up with warm water again stay with the car it may take a long time to level out. If the car is bubbling furiously and doesn't want to settle then possible HEAD GASKET Failure or Water pump.
Does your oil look milky on the dipstick? is there an excessive amount of water coming out of the exhaust? are your hoses swelling with radiator/header tank cap on at operating temp?
Sorry to be the possible bearer of bad tiding if the Gasket has gone, but better to sort it now than cause irreprable damage?

The converter should last 10 or 15 years if you don't have issues that damage it. Get thoses codes checked out and repaired. If you have antifreeze entering the exhaust,a leaking fuel injector,bad o2 sensor etc,that could ruin the converter,if you drive it that way for a year or more. The converter may be installed wrong or an exhaust joint is leaking in air and setting a code. o2 sensor loose and other issues. Have to start somewhere and walk it down untill you find the problem.
