if the fan is working properly, the only thing left to check is the radiator...
i may be clogged or damaged so the water can't travel in it properly...

Are you looking for a leak or does the engine just get hot?
It's been my experience that unless you have the timing too advanced (not probable on computerized engines), or there is a spun bearing (which would make noise), then an overheating problem is most likely (after the thermostat) the radiator being plugged up. It could have been partially defective to start with (no, 'flushing' doesn't usually help).
Bars leak will only make the problem worse.

it could but- check passenger side front where heater core line go into manifold right behind alternator the hose line is connected by a press clip into an alloy fitting this fitting gets eaten away by anti freeze and hose angle pulls back on fitting the part is $18 at dealer and is screwed into manifold use caution if ur r going to replace at very edge of aluminum manifold---and check ur water pump bolts the 2 longer ones should have a lock sealant on them they bolt in thru a water jacket

There is a heater core bypass pipe that runs from the block (under the manifold) to the bacl of theengine where you will see a flat rectangular "sheet metal" thing with a pipe coming out of it. The a rubber hose connects. You need to pull the top air plenums and intake to get to it. The p[ipe flange bolts to the block with silicone rtv as a sealant.
