Check the cooling fan operations.

Do you mean the cooling fan is working when the overheating occurs?
Does coolant spill out of reservoir at this time?

Compare the temperature difference between the upper and lower radiator hose. If there is a vast difference and the air being pulled by the cooling fan is not extremely hot, you have a coolant citculation problem. It could be clogging, a bad water pump or stuck cloded thermostat. Though you have replaced the thermostat, new parts do fail too.

Try removing the thermostat and running engine to see if the overheating still occurs. This might take a longer running time to overheat.

The last component in the cooling system likely to cause this would be the water pump. It could have a fault with the impellers which has resulted in poor coolant circulation causing the overheating.

You would have to enquire locally as cost varies according to location and also the type of engine makes a difference in the work required.
