My car keeps overheating, I have already replaced the Trans Cooling Unit, the Fans, The Radiator, and the Thermostat. Please help. Could it be that now the Water Pump or the Temperature gauge is gone.

3.5 water pumps are known to fail and create the same condition. If you are sure it is an overheat problem and not a gauge problem I would replace the water pump.

Unless you have replaced on a 3.5 at least 3 times successfully don't trty it. It is driven by the timing belt and it is an interference engine. Off ine tooth and you have wiped the valve train. Let a pro do it. Good luck
