Does it overheat at highway speeds or only when in traffic at an idle? Have you flushed the radiator and engine block?

It overheats at both. I have done the radiator flush

Everything has been replaced, so either the radiator is still partially plugged, there is a head gasket issue, or the timing is wrong.
