I recently bought my 2000 Chrysler Sebring V6 Coupe, I did most of the basic stuff, check the fluids, refilled them, and even add replaced some of the parts it needed. It has started to overheat. I replaced the thermostat first, MAP sensor, Temp sensor, and a pressure release radiator cap and it still reading overheat, I replaced the radiator. The radiator worked a lot better because it was time to be changed, But it still says the engine is about to overheat but it doesn't smoke in front or behind the motor. So I went and got a water pump but I haven't installed it yet but I'm not certain it's time to be changed. Can you help me?

You're going about this all wrong. As you're finding out, replacing random parts is the most expensive and least effective way to diagnose a problem. Before you throw more parts at it, have a mechanic perform a chemical test at the radiator for a leaking cylinder head gasket. It only takes about five minutes. If that comes up negative, then we'll figure out where to go next.
