I have a 2001 Toyota Camry 2.2L that is overheating. I put a brand new thermastat. I tested new thermastat to make sure it works. I replaced the raidiator with brand new one. Car still overheats while...

Three places I'd check first:
1: Check for leaks, including the plastic pressure tank if your Camry has one. Small leaks can let the pressure drop without losing any water, but the lower pressure lowers the boiling point of the fluid, which sets up a cycle that makes the water turn to steam and actually get hotter because it can't circulate properly.
2: Check to make sure the water pump is working, or at the very least that the pulley on the water pump is not slipping. SImilar to #1 above, it the water isn't getting circulated from the engine into the radiator, it can't be cooled down.
3: Check for excess moisture in the exhaust. A leaky head gasket can cause both loss of pressure and steam buildup (ala #1 above) as well as pushing hot exhaust into the cooling system. Also, check for any foam in the oil, as this is an indicator of a head gasket problem as well (water mixing with oil makes foam)

I have a overheating problem with my ford mustang can you help me please. the coolant pushes out of the radiator neck when added. no boiling over when the radiator cap is in place just overheating on the...

First thing is to have the radiator rodded out. (90% of the overheating problems I see) and if thats not it get a compression check to see if the headgasket is blown. If the water pump is not leaking then its not the problem. The water pump is just metal fins inside so if its spinning, its pumping.
