Incorrect timing can also cause overheating along with bad radiator, bad pump, fan not working, bad thermostat, AC, inadequate lubrication, low coolant level, engine load as when towing, etc.
Until issue resolved put your heater on full blast and lower the window.

This actually sounds like your motor is not the problem it sounds as
thougth your transmission is in need of work. if you have flushed your
system also may look at your oil pump system as the change in pitch of the road to climb hills may infact be pulling sludge against the sump
tube screen and plugging the oil pump. these are the only two reasons I can see for this to happen if system only dose this when climbing a hill

Raise the front end off the ground with a floor jack, fill the coolant recovery tank as high as possible and then run engine until it gets up to high normal temperature on gauge, shut the engine down and run water over the radiator core, the coolant will be pulled into the engine as the core is cooled, do not let the tank run dray during this process.
