drain water and put green anti freeze in so you can find the leak a lot easier.you could also put a little dish washing liquid in the radiator put the radiator cap back on and see where the bubbles come from

If you changed the hoses and thermostat and the car is still overheating, then the next thing to look at is the water pump. See if the water pump is leaking water from a vent hole. If it is, then the water pump is defective and will need to be replaced. Sure hope this helped.

SOURCE: cooling system purge info
The biggist problem is most likely the cooling system needs bleeding to purge the air out of the cooling system.To do this,the easy way,is to start this with the car cold.Remove the reservoir cap and fill it full,past the full mark.Wait to see if the coolant level drops.Then refill to the top.Replace the cap,and start the engine,and let it run up to about 218 to 220,and shut the engine off(do not turn ac on,make sure it is off).Wait about 45 minutes,and look at the reservoir level,it should have dropped.If so refill the reservoir,and repeat these steps until the cooling fans come on at about 215 or so,and they go back off by themselves.Keep check on the reservoir for a day or so to make sure that the reservoir does not drop to low,the level will finally set.If I can help,let me know.>>>firstname.lastname@example.org
