Good evening, I hope you are doing well. I would be happy to answer this for you.

If the radiator, thermostat, and water pump have all been replaced and the car still overheats then I would be suspect of a head/block issue. If there is a failed head gasket it will cause combustion gases to enter the cooling system, which then heats things up way too fast. I would recommend inspecting for possible head gasket failure

If possible the radiator maybe is bad
Chrysler Mechanic: Gabriel Grey, Auto Service Technician replied 3 months ago

It is possible that the new radiator is plugged/restricted and not allowing proper coolant flow. It may be worth a shot to test it out just to make sure, it's not too common, but I have gotten a few radiators and condensers that were bad right out of the box

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
