Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are many things that can cause overheating. You may have a water pump impeller issue, a combustion leak, it's possible that one of the repairs you did actually should have fixed the problem but there is still air in the system.

What year and model is the vehicle?
Does it only overheat at idle?
How fast does it overheat from a cold start?

once it overheats do you have to shut the engine off to get temperature to come down?
