Second opinion] my subaru 2007 tribeca is aloverheating

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Tribeca yourself? What have you tried so far?

My mechanic has changed the therm., water pump, radiator and it still didn't work. So I took the car to subaru dealer and they changed one side of the engine (short header) for 6,986$. This worked for 13 months now i'm back to overheating again.

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle ever overheated? And when was it last serviced?

13 months ago.
