I have a new water pump I checked all the hoses and no leaks found. It over heats after driving for awhile. I am thinking it is not flowing through the radiator. The overflow hose works fine but the radiator is cold all the time and water level stays the same. Do I need a new radiator? Or might it be clogged?

Could be clog in system somewhere, are your cooling fan(s) coming on? Also need to remove and test thermostat.

The fan comes on and I removed the thermostat to see if it wasnt opening correctly and letting it flow through but that was not the problem. I am assuming its clogged and will get a hose and try to flush it later. Plus I have new temp sensor also.
