1997 Chevy camaro v6 3.8, The car has had the radiator, water pump, and the thermostat replaced. The radiator is not pushing water back into the motor for rotation so it keeps overheating. What could be the problem?

Check the water pump

One way to test for a bad water pump is to squeeze the upper radiator hose when the engine is hot and idling. Careful, because the hose will be HOT! If you do not feel much coolant circulating through the hose when you rev the engine, the pump may be bad. The other cause might be a bad thermostat that is not opening properly (remove and inspect the thermostat), or a clogged radiator.
