Remove the raidator cap while running or watch the overflow tank for bubbles. If you see bubbles either way, most likely your cause of the overheating is a leaking head gasket. If you have a cooling system pressure tester, pump up the cooling system and see if it looses pressure, if it doesn't hold pressure, again bad head gasket.

It's not possible to tell you exactly what is causing the vehicle to overheat; however, I can tell you possible causes. The engine cooling system is based on the fact that heat always travels to cold, so that if one thing is warmer than another, it will transfer its heat to the cooler thing. Engine heat is first transferred to the coolant in its water passages, the coolant carries the heat to the radiator where the heat is then transferred to the air flowing between the radiator cores and fins; the cooled coolant then returns to the engine to take away more heat. Thermostats, when they deteriorate, usually stick open from lack of spring pressure and cause the engine to run cool, so we can rule that out. You need to check for good coolant circulation by the water pump, and check the radiator and A/C condenser to make sure nothing is restricting air flow (such as bugs, leaves etc. or bent over fins), and the last, and possibly most likely source of the problem is clogged radiator cores that are not exposing the heated coolant to the air flow. The greatest tool for diagnosing cooling systems is a no touch thermometer available at many parts stores for around $30 to $50 for a decent one. If your problem is clogged radiator cores flushing seldom clears them, and few radiator shops rod out cores anymore, so the least expensive and best sure is a new radiator. One final thought, if your vehicle has a fan shroud make sure it's in place and in good shape.

Its over heating and ive changed the water pump clutch fan and themostat.

You may have a blown head gasket. They can leak outside the motor, inside the cylinders (causues white smoke), or into the block causing water in the oil (light brown color and or bubbles on the dipstick) or oil in the radiator. Hopefully you have none of those, so the next step is a radiator flush as you probably have something clogging up the radiator or thermostat. You have to drain the radiator and fill with clean water. Pull out the thermostat and leave it out for the flush. There are radiator flush products that I suggest highly. Run the truck to operating temp (about 20 min) with the heat on and dump the system by removing the bottom hose hose from the radiator, after the truck cools off. With the hose still off dump water through the radiator to clean it out fully. fill with water and let it run once again to clean the block, then reinstall new thermostat and anti-freeze. This should clean out any rust and stop leak that is causing your problems.

Over heating When air condition is running it get hot much faster. Have to turn it off at traffic lights. On open road it does not heat up as high

The first place would look assuming you have already changed antifreeze and replaced radiator cap is the fan clutch, try moving the fan when the motor is cool does it move freely? if yes then replace the fan clutch. If it is stiff then check that the radiator is not plugged with bugs or dabree if it is take it to a car wash and wash it out in reverse flow from the engine side out, be sure not to get electrical parts wet.If this does not fix your problem then you can check the hoses by removing them and see if they are separated if not then the next issue is the water pump or head gasket, the head gasket would be checked by using a gas sniffer at a garage to see if hydrocarbons are coming from the radiator, if not then your best bet is the water pump I hope this helps.

You need to make sure there is no air trapped in the system. I assume you flushed the radiator when you changed the thermostat. I also assume you installed fresh coolant mixed 50/50 antifreeze and distilled water. I also assume you installed the thermostat correctly with the spring facing the engine. Look on the upper part of the cooling system and the engine for bleeder valves (If Equipped). Now remove the radiator cap from a cold engine and make sure the radiator is totally full. Set the heater temperature control to HOT. Start the engine and look for escaping air bubbles from the radiator. Keep the coolant level full at all times. It will take awhile for the thermostat to fully open so be patient. Once you see no more escaping air bubbles install the cap. Wait about 2 minutes with the engine running and use the bleeder valves to remove any more trapped air from the system. Post back if this did not help.
