Hello Tommy, If you do not torque a cylinder head properly or to the correct torque, the head gasket could possibly fail.

I have replaced the radiator, thermostat fan motor&sensor & its still overheating but my temperature gauge is not telling me its hot & water is coming up threw my radiator cap i replaced it but...

Head gasket blown and compression is building in the cooling system and pushing the coolant out.
To check this you can get a block test kit from Napa Auto parts or a good parts supplier (or may have a shop check it so you don't have to buy the whole kit).
Its a blue liquid and a tube with a suction device and a cone. You empty some coolant from the radiator and run the car at idle. hold the tube with the blue liquid in the radiator opening and draw vapor into the tube. If the liquid turns yellow that means there is combustion chamber gasses in the cooling system (head gasket, cracked head, cracked block)

Also if you replaced the belt and this started happening, make sure its routed properly

Blown head gasket. Need head bolt, rocker arm removal and reinstall torque specs, and what order to remove/install.

No check the intake manifold gasket first that is most likely your problem and you don't have to remove the heads to do this . Over heat these engines once and this will happen and its a lot cheaper and far less work to do the intake then the heads happens all the time its a problom with chevy engines
