Have you checked or tested the water pump? That's probably the only other part involved in cooling.

Good Luck

very lucky not to have done head gaskets
good job
water pump that meant taking the timing belt off

soft/old radiator hoses collapse when hot restricting coolant flow
check these

94 Econoline Van Overheats when under load but drives fine when it's not.


Radiator could be blocked or partial. Best way I check for that is to use a temp laser gun and check the fins of the radiator for temp differences. And has stop leak ever been used?

Re4place the thermostat.It actually sounds like the thermostat might have been put in facing the wrong way? The copper pellet side has to face the engine. That's my first guess,anyway. post back and keep us informed. don-ohio (:^)

if you've flushed the system, and made all those changes, ( be sure the thermostat is placed spring towards the motor) you may have a head gasket or warped head issue

This can be a few different things..

Does it only overheat while at a dead stop and cool down while driving? Or does it overheat no matter what?

You know most people think of the worst when it comes to these things. Try this, let your run for about ten minutes then shut it off. Feel both upper and lower hoses and see if they feel about the same in temp. If not than it could be your thermostat. If everything feels fine then you may have a bad sensor.

Overheating


If you follow the top radiator hose to the engine. The part that the hose is connected to on the engine is the thrmostate housing. you'll find the thermostate underthat housing.
Good luck and hope this helps.

There could be several reasons that may cause an engine to overheat. It sounds like you have covered the most important ones. Thermostat,radiator and water pump. Hopefully you do not have internal damage, cracked head, head gasket, or a cracked block. I would try flushing the heater core and pay close attention to what comes out. You know, is it clogged with stop leak or rust. Then while I was flushing that I would drain the entire system and put in some Prestone super radiator flush. You just add plain water with it and run your vehicle for about 10 minutes. You then empty your cooliant system and refill with antifreeze. The flush works pretty well and if there is an obstruction from a previous owner putting stop leak in the system it generally will clean it out.
BTW, are you sure the thermostat is in properly? Not upside down? I think I would start there before I went through all of the work of flushing the system. It actually sounds like from everything you've done already, that's possible. Hey it does happen once in awhile. Was this car overheating when you bought it? If so, maybe the previous owner put it in upside down, and when you changed it put it in the same way by accident.
Hope this helps.
