Ok, you say its not the thermastat and the system was flushed, then what else could it be? With your first post you mentioned that the temp would go up and down. That is a sign of the thermastat going bad or a clog in the system. In your last post you say the car has run to where it has overheated that bad where it sputters and the engine stops then I would look at having a compression. Then I would definatly have a pressure check on the coolant system along with having a compresssion check done on each cylinder. It may have overheated so bad it could have caused a blown head gasket or had cracked the block.
Check out the trouble shooting section in that section #4 talks about the engine running hot.
