Could be any of the cooling components.

Did you change thermostat?

How about bleeding the air out of the system again?

Did you check your hoses?

Check your radiator cap to see if the 2 orings are intact.

Did you change out the heater coolant pipes under your intake?


When is it overheating?

Is your cooling fan running when it should?
