Question about Cars & Trucks
I believe you have a pocket of air in your system. This happened to me before and I had all the same symptoms. I realized I was going to have to push water through the system manually to get it out. When I changed my water pump and hooked everything back up, there was no flow of coolant through the system, so I made sure when I hooked the hoses back up there was no air in them by pouring coolant into them. If that doesn't work, you can use a garden hose to force start the coolant.

You need to make sure you don’t have an air lock. Find the bleeder valve for the coolant system and release the air. If you can’t find the bleeder, find the highest hose for the coolant system and make sure coolant is flowing through it.

Have the cooling system pressure tested. If it holds pressure, that's a good thing. If it doesn't hold pressure, you may have a leaking head gasket. What may be happening is the crack in the head gasket could be blowing hot air into the cooling system causing it to overheat.

possible blown head gasket, have a leak down test done to see if there is bubbles present in the radiator when looking in through the radiator cap hole. you can also remove spark plugs and see if there is any water or moisture present on plugs.
even though you may have flushed your radiator ( I presume that "you" have done that) there may still be a few bars blocked with dirt etc, you may have to have the top and bottom tank removed and have the individual bars cleaned to make sure there are no blocked bars.
Hope this helps
