    I've already checked the oil and all that good stuff. It isn't a head gasket. I am thinking that a new radiator as oppsosed to a repaired one may be the solution. My car doesn't run hot as easy when I have the heater running and I am noticing water secretions in the front tiop of my radiator, I just can't pinpoint a leak.:(

I hate to be the one who tells you but,if your radiator cores arent blocked as you said you have your radiator fixxed,its a head gasket,antifreeze is leaking by the head gasket and going into the piston chamber when the piston goes up it pushes the fluid back into the radiator,check your oil distick for a milky white look,antifreeze in the oil,if your car starts to have white smoke its antifreeze getting into the exaust ports either way head gasket

My suggestion is the water pump - I don't think it is circulating the coolant.

Well, I have the same problem and the thermostat is out, so I'm running with out a thermostat and only if I get stocked in traffic fro too long my car overheat. I checked the radiator and is very clean but the car looks like is burning the water because it get low on antifreeze.
I never let the temperature gauche to reach the red section. I stop and add more antifreeze before I keep on going.
Any more help for me too?

Altima 3.5 overheating and now spit the water by radiator cap

Sounds like your thermostat may be stuck closed. When the car is at operating temperature, does warm air come out of the vents inside? If it's blowing cold air, then change your thermostat.

I changed the thermostat in my 91 plymouth sundance and my car is still overheating and the reserve tank is spitting out coolant

You change the head gasket

The spitting is cylinder pressure or combustion
gases blowing out coolant

I keep overheating changed out thermostat and fan and still overheating I fill the hose with coolant and it all goes into the overfill tank and gets hot and boils out

A clogged radiator could be your problem. Flushing won't necessarily clean out a clogged radiator.
When it's idling and getting hot, the clutch fan should be running full on, actually "roaring" as some say, and the electric auxiliary fan or fans should be on if you have them. Also test your radiator cap, replace if needed. Hope this helps.

Over heating

The thermostat is right on the lower radiator hose, where the lower hose goes into engine. If you look at bottom of radiator you see two wires and a nut that is the thermostat.
