Hook up a cooling system pressure tester. If you have a pin point leak, the pressure from the tester will shoot coolant out of the leaking area.

I would check o2 sensors but to tell you the truth my dad bought a new thermostat that was suppose to open at 160 degrees his temp. got to 220 degrees before but check o2 senors and thermostat

your heater has apparently restricted the coolant flow....hopefully a good system back flushing will cure the problem....use a flush obtained from a parts house....I would buy the hose kit for flushing as well...good luck to you

Testimonial: "thank you"
it is possible that when the water pressure rises in your radiator, and the radiator shoots the water into the reserve tank, that hose is not properly put on(happens alot when changing radiator) and the coolant leaks rapidly through there. another thing i suggest is observe your fan behavior. fans usually are only supposed to turn on for a couple of seconds, around 10 or 15. park your car, and let the car reach normal operating temperature. when the car starts to over heat, check to see if your fans turn off at all. if they do, then it is most likely the tw swith,or the water temperature switch. if you notice the fans stay running, then i suggest obesrving your hoses and replaing any that spill coolant because even a pressure test on your cooling system can miss a small pucture in a hose, which after a while will cause your coolant to leak, and your car to overheat. hope this helps. if still nothing, drop a comment and ill help you out somemore, but for now, this is the practical thing to do. hope this helps, goodluck.
