Why would pontiac 2000 grand am overheat while driving in the mountains?

It could be your radiator is partially blocked or your water pump is not working properly, could also be a blown head gasket or cracked head or timing. Several things that could be causing the problem

Loss of coolant

Possibilities:- Have you tried inside the car, is the carpet wet under the dashboard (Heater matrix leaking) Is the exhaust steaming, dripping excessive water (Head gasket). Coolant cap not sealing, allowing coolant to boil away. System needs to be pressure tested.

2000 grand Cherokee 4.7 overheats it has new motor, new radiator, new water pump, new thermostat, new electric fan, new clutch fan, what should I replace next?

If this has not been done.It needs to be.
Get the cooling system pressure tested.All that is done is a pump gets fitted to the radiator cap position.It gets pumped up like a pushbike pump and it has a pressure gauge on it.It is pumped up.Let to sit and the gauge is monitored.If the pressure drops it indicates a leakage in the system.Hoses,radiator or even a head gasket.It is a very easy test to be done and it should be very cheap.The other thing is the engine block may have a blockage.After all you have replaced and fixed,there is not much left to do.Get the pressure test 1st.
Is the temp gauge reading hot or is the motor actually boiling?(temp sender unit?)
Hope this helps

Have a 2000 grand Cherokee 4.7, car boiled on me so replaced therostat, didnt fix, replaced clutch fan, didnt fix, replaced thermo fan, didnt fix, replaced water pump, did both head gaskets, new radiator,...

You need to pressure test the cooling system. Unless you had the heads magnafluxed or inspected very carefully, there could be minute cracks causing the problem.

This is the #1 problem with any engine where boiling takes place due to the expansion power that steam has the capability of producing.

The cylinder walls could also have cracks in them, there could also be a freeze plug that is leaking slightly, causing the engine to overheat as it can't build the proper pressure.

sometimes it's a better move to get a low mileage used motor, than to attempt to repair one that has high mileage and this type of suspected damage.

good luck

1996 Pontiac Grand Am / Overheating

likely you have a blown head gasket or crack in head. Though common, this condition does not always show up in engine oil. To verify, have a shop do a hydrocarbon test on radiator.

Termostat replacement

No special stuff for this. Remove anything in your way, remove therm housing, take out therm, scrape off ALL old gasket material. Put back together. (spring end of stat goes towards engine) Run and re-fill coolant with heater on high heat. check for leaks....That's it.
If you want to test old one, place in a pot of water and boil. therm should open at or close to # stamped on it (yours should be 195 use thermometer to thermometer is fine)
