I have replaced the radiator, top hose and thermostat; had radiator power flushed and car continues to run hot when driven for more than 30 minutes. My car is a 2001 OLDS AURORA.

When you shut the car off after being hot, disconnect the fans by the radiator and just feel the radiator in different spots. If you feel cold spots then the radiator is bad as it should be the same temp all over. If not that have it checked for head gasket or intake manifold gaskets that are leaking.
