Does the heater blow good warm air? Is it boiling over or blowing coolant out the overflow bottle?

Thanks, ***** ***** a blown head gasket. Since you have replaced everything that could cause it that is what I suspect is happening.

There are a few ways to confirm it's a head gasket. Block check chemical kit or using a special funnel to look for combustion gas bubbles. https://youtu.be/YY2w2QvwAVo

Sorry but it really sounds like a blown head gasket to me.
