Sounds like you have a heat transfer problem. First, on a 91, it's likely that the inside of your radiator is partially obstructed with calcium, rust or both. I know that you flushed it but often the flush will go around the obstruction and will only clean the parts that are already flowing (does little good). Rust does not dissolve easily using over the counter flushes and flushing in the vehicle often leaves debris in the tank which will get right back into the core as soon as you start the engine up again. sometimes it can be commercially cleaned, other times you need to just replace it. Air flow can also be impaired...check that the a/c condenser and the face of the radiator between it and the condenser are clean and not packed with bugs, leaves or other debris.

My 2003 ford taurus overheats when driving around town, stop & go, but on highway temperature goes back to normal

I had the same problem with my 99 ford taurus. My ford taurus did exactly did same things that your vehicle is doing. runs cool on the freeway because the air is going through the radiator and cooling the water down.I checked the cooling fans, radiator and hoses for leaks also replaced my thermostat. nothing solved the problem. turns out that the new antifreeze does not come with a lubercant property any longer. you have to buy the lubercant additive separately and then add it to your cooling system when you replace the antifreeze. the lubercant protects your freeze plugs, water pump, radiator, thermastat from rusting out. Meanwhile because of the absents of the lubercant, my water pump impellers rusted out and dissolved. so the water pump had no fins to circulate the water. Luckly for me, I discovered that my car was still under warranty due to an extended warranty I had purchased when I bought the car. ford dealership replaced the water pump. Problem Solved.

I have a 1995 grand jeep cheerokee and my thermastat gage isnt reading and my oil smells like gas how much is new injecters and how do i keep my jeep the coolest as possible

If it has been a long time since your oil has been changed, the fuel smell is somewhat normal. Changing your oil and filter will take care of that. Unless you are having problems with the fuel injectors, there is no need to replace them. They have nothing to do with the fuel smell of the oil. If you feel you need new injectors, they will cost around $50.00 each. Your temperature guage will probably work if you replace the Coolant Temperature Sending Unit, cost is about $10.00 for the 6 cylinder engine. If, by keeping your Jeep the coolest possible, you mean the engine temperature, then maintaining and servicing the cooling system regularly will be all that is needed. Change the thermostat, drain and flush the cooling system and add the recommended quantity of a 50/50 solution of antifreeze and water. If you have an electric cooling fan, make sure it is operating properly.

My 2005 pontiac grand prix was overheating and was leaking water out of the jug so I put a thermastat in it . And it still was overheating so I flushed the radiator and it was still overheating,then I...

Most likely it is a combination problem involving the water pump. The temp sensor being slow to respond being the problem would be easily identified. If the vehicle is over heating when you are moving and 30 to 40 mph it is not a sensor or Fan. It could possibly still be the fan if the fan clutches are not working and allowing it to free spin as air moves faster through the Radiator but this is less likely than a bad water pump.

Car comes close to overheating while doing highway speeds

Sounds like either the thermostat or water pump. Either way, there appears to be a lack of circulation in the cooling system. Check the overflow reservoir. If it's backing up or not taking coolant, it's likely the thermostat, if it's working correctly, I'd lean toward the water pump.
All the best.
