Some times the impellers in the water pump wear down and dont flow enough water to cool things properly.

You may want to make sure you have the air bleed out of the system.

The belt may not have enough tension to properly drive the water pump.

Is your cooling fan working properly?

These are some random things that I have ran into over the years I hope they help you some

Keeps running hot change thermostat, fan, moduler

if fan turns on and nothing is leaking try to find a thermometer and check the radiator in different areas sometimes they clog up and only a few vanes are open and not cooling it off properly.youll find cold spots the temp in different area should be the same +or - 10 degree one side to the other.

We have replace the water pump, thermostat, sensor,replace cap for radiator coolant,and replace the radiator.The car keeps running hot.

Oil level and correct grade of oil? Oil filter? Rent a temp gun from an auto store and check for actual temp. If it is running hot you still have a leak, like on a hose or the reservoir or maybe you didnt get all the air bubbles out. Also thermostats can come bad, replace again.

I had the radiator and thermostat changed

when you had the thermastat replaced the might have put a higher temp one in and that will make it seem like it's running hot you might have to put a lower temp one in
