I have a 1998 Sidekick Sport JLX 130,000 miles and I've had almost everything to do with the cooling system replaced one by one over the past 4 months. Now if I drive it under 3000 rpms it overheats within 5 minutes. I am at a loss. I just had the water pump replaced, there a new head + gasket, new fan clutch. New hoses, belts, new radiator and thermastat. The mechanic I go to simply can't figure out what's happening and I'm at a total loss.

You have an air pocket in the engine. After you remove the coolant and replace you have to bleed the air from the system. Don't wait to long or it Sayonara Sidekick
