Hello and welcome!
My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question.
Was the radiator itself replaced?
Can I start by getting your VIN?
Thank you!

Thank you for the VIN!
YES, the most common cause of an overheating condition on this vehicle would be a bad radiator. Flushing it will not do the trick. It needs to be replaced.

Just a heads up, the water pump and a blown head gasket could also cause this overheating condition.
However, the most common cause is the radiator.
