For the past 3 weeks I am working to solve the overheating issue. The situation start with a lickage in the matal pipe from the water pump to the engine, this was replaced but continue with the over heating. I already eplace the following parts.
1- Radiator Cap
2- Thermostat
3 The plastic pipe were go the radiator cap and thermostat
4-Thermoswicht
5- The high & Low speed fan module.
6- Fan
7- Piston compression ok (175 in the four)

The car can be in idle hours an not overheat

Have you tried to flush the radiator? Also, check the radiator hoses to make sure they are not collapsed when it overheats.

Let me know what you find.

If everything is replaced, then the last thing I can think of is timing. Even though it is controled by the computer, a crank or cam sensor could cause a timing problem.
