Have you checked the water pump and connections to it? Just had similar problem with mine and that was it.

SOURCE: 1999 Protege overheating. Changed thermostat,

if your vehicle has electric cooling fans it could be that they are not working,if this is the case when you are on the freeway you don't need the cooling fans you only need them when the vehicle is not moving as there is no air going through the radiator to keep the engine cool......hope this helps......cheers.

Why would my 96' cadillac seville be overheating after i put a new radiator a new water pump a new thermostat and new fan motors in it

Someone would need to test the system and find out at what point the engine is overheating.
Is the thermostat not opening - is the coolant not flowing - or are the fans not coming on when the coolant reaches 220 degrees ?

We have an 1998 olds intrigue. I have had the radiator flushed new hose, new thermostate put in about a month ago. The car is still overheating what could be the problem

remove thermostat, and see if it still overheats, check thermostat by boiling water, and drop thermostat in and see if it opens, if opens get new radiator!

My 1996 toyota avalon is overheating. There are no leaks, thermostat is new, radiator is new and has been flushed, changed the fan relay. Don't know why its overheating.

Is the fan coming on? If not, possible lower radiator fan switch/sensor? No leaks... So overflow tanks level stays stable? How do you know it is overheating? Elevated temp guage? Engine smells overheated? Both? We need more info.

Lincoln ls overheating

Cheap try is new radiator cap. If it cant pressurize the system the boil temp lowers considerably. If put new cap on and still over heat could have bad head gasket or a blockage in radiator...Cap is common and 10.00 to fix....
