2002 dodge neon running VERY HOT ... what to do next?

Have you verified that system has been "burped" of air? That the fans kick on? Check radiator hoses for kinks. You can try running without the thermostat to see if that helps and can identify if the thermostat could be a problem. You may need to check your coolant mixture too.
Sounds like you have reduced flow or restriction in cooling (heat exchanger) as it runs fine at cooler temp but can't keep up when it gets warm.
New parts don't always equal working fine parts.

I've changed the head gasket (top overhaul),the thermostat,the radiator cap and serviced the radiator where the water is flushed out and replaced and checked for no leaks but still my trooper over

You have a water leak from the sound of it or water is draining from over heating. Things to check for, leaks at the hose connections, leaks at heater connections on engine, leaks at water pump and any leaks at head gasket. Assuming there are no leaks check or replace or adjust your water pump belt. Take the thermostat out and run the engine without out it. If the problem is solved replace the thermostat recommended for you car. You can also have it checked as well.

Why does the engine fan NOT turn off on my 2002 Jaguar S Type 4.0 liter? It runs for several minutes after turning the car off and will come on while driving. I just replaced the sensor and it is still...

It would not be abnormal, so long as the fan does not come on when you switch on from cold. The fan's job is to draw air through the radiator to cool the contained liquid to a suitable working temperature. The fans sensor is activated by the temperature of the coolant. If this is a problem which worries you, try driving as gently and slowly as possible for the last mile or two of your journey. If things are normal the fan should not run on switch-off as that 'trick' will have allowed the coolant to get below the fan-kick-in temperature before you stop the engine. If your vehicle has a temperature gauge use the rteading as an indication.

My 2004 Ford Expedition, keeps overheating and I have no leaks, I changed the thermastat and I flushed the radiater the temperature gage keeps rising to high.

Check the fan clutch and see if its engaging ! Start the motor and let run a few minutes and turn vehicle off while observing the fan blades if it free wheels when the motor is turned off then its bad ! Also take the radiator cap off with it cold and full of fluid and start the car - does coolant imediately shoot out if so the head gaskets are blown !

The water in my radiator is lowering when i push the throttle down. This happened during a flush i did. Its full but the water lowers and rises when you move the throttle any at all. I dont get where its...

You've got air trapped in the cooling system.The lowering and rising is caused by the water pump sucking the coolant into the engine thru the bottom radiator hose when the thermostat is closed. When you let off the throttle, the water pump slows down, an since the thermostat is closed, the coolant has nowhere to go except back into the radiator.You need to bleed the air from the cooling system or it can cause over heating and the heater may not work right. Here's how to go about it: You'lll need a gallon of antifreeze. Use a jack to raise the front of the vehicle so the radiator is higher than the engine. Remove the radiator cap and start the engine. Make sure the heater controls are on the hottest setting, but do not turn the heater on. Let the engine warm up to normal temperature. Watch the coolant level in the radiator. When the thermostat opens, the coolant level will drop. Now, add antifreeze to fill it back up. If there is still air in the system, the level will drop again. Add more antifreeze. Continue to do this until the coolant level stabilizes. Put the radiator cap back on and make sure the temperature Gage doesn't show overheating. Turn on the heater to make sure it blows hot air. Your done

2000 Leganza no heat; heater core is not leaking; blower works

try and see if there is any bleed screws on the water system ie near thermostat housing or top hose sounds like you have an air lock in the water system if the blower is not getting warm

Temperature gauge goes up all of the sudden

It sounds like you have air in the Cooling system and the bars leak permanent seal does not help. The sealer creates restrictions through out the water jackets and can cause the thermostat to stick. Replace the radiator cap and run the truck with the radiator cap on the first click and keep an eye on the over flow tank, refill the over flow as needed and make sure you have the heater on the highest setting to work out all the air in the system. Once all the air has worked it's way out of the system, then you can close the radiator cap to the second click to ensure full pressure is built up in your cooling system. Good luck and keep me posted.
