Sounds like the radiator fan is not working. Or if it is and it uses some sort of clutch, then the fan air is not sufficient to cool the radiator. To verify, pls jump/hardwire the radiator fan temporarily to be always on with the engine running. this would mean providing a direct connection to the IGN B+12 and the other to the ground. Try, if it still overheats, then problem is elsewhere; if overheating stops, then it cold be;
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

2004 Chrysler Concorde LXI 3.5lt engine. with new radiator, water pump, radiator cap, thermostat, and bled properly. Also dye test performed on heads and block, no problem there is still overheating. What do I do next? Tired of process of elimination really costing way too much to figure out. Bought the car new, for 4 yrs everything was fine and all of a sudden started running hot. There is no oil in water, or water in the oil.

Problem with this is that it could be a number of things, have ur water pump checked, open the radiator and see if there is water running through it, a bad or plugged thermostat, in this case it does sound like a blown head gasket. id suggest flushing the radiator with some cleaner that u can buy at the store and check n see if ur thermostat is stuck, hope for the best and expect the worst
