A common problem is that the electric fan will not operate. You need to determine if the fan is coming on when the vehicle gets warm.
When you replaced the coolant, were you sure that you got all of the air out of the cooling system? If you have any air in the system, it will cause your system to run hot!

there should be a cap some where but if not there should be some sort of hose coming out of the top of the radiator pull the hose and fill it up from there, and top it all the way off, make it spill, all the way full! and when an engine over heats it usually ruins the thermostat so i would recomend replacing it also

I must say it is a curious problem, we recently got a used 2001 and have just had the same problem. The way it was heating up I felt it was the thermostat so changed that but didnt help. It appears that air pockets are causeing the over heating. On the thermostat houseing is a bleeder vaule which you can use to get the air out. It takes a little time to get all the air out but once I bleed the system out it seems to be fine now. Hope this helps

Check the oil, is the oil milky on the dipstick?
Check the Transmission Fliud level, Low?
If it is engine oil it could be a head gasket, if it is transmission oil then the cooling lines in the lower tank of the radiator may be leaking.
