SOURCE: running hot
Sounds like Clutch in your fan
The coolant level is right on, no hoses are leaking and the accessory belt is intact. You start the engine, let it idle and make a visual inspection. There's no sign of belt slippage.
If your car is like most, the cooling fan is mounted to its drive pulley via a clutch. Clutch fans operate at different speeds under different conditions to help reduce drain on the engine and to save fuel. When the engine is hot, the clutch fan runs nearly as fast as the engine. When the engine is cold, the fan runs much more slowly.
The fan clutch operation is regulated by a valve that is opened and closed by a thermostatic spring. The valve controls the flow of a viscous silicone fluid between chambers in the clutch assembly. When the engine is cold, the clutch is essentially disengaged, which is why the fan runs at its slowest compared to the engine's speed. As the engine warms up, the air flowing to the fan assembly becomes hotter. The hotter air causes the thermostatic spring to unwind and open the valve. Silicone fluid from the reservoir chamber flows into the main chamber, engaging the clutch, and the fan spins faster (though it's still slightly slower than the engine.
Hope this helps!

did you run a compression check? if so and its good then you have a blockage in the water jacket
if not then you have a head gasket leaking

I take it this only happens when the vehicle is stopped & idling? If not, check radiator & hoses for blockage (since you've already replaced the thermostat & top hose) - repair/replace as needed. Next, check the coolant temperature sensor's operation (there are two sensors - one for the temp gauge on the instrument panel, the other is used by the ECM (PCM). If that one is malfunctioning (i.e., telling the computer that the engine coolant temperature is less than it actually is, The ECM (PCM) it won't turn on the cooling fans.
Since you didn't specify which engine you have (i.e., 2.4, 2.6 or 3.5), Photo locations of all three are included here.
Hope this helps.
