1992 Ford Taurus GL 3.0L V6 Automatic 185000+ miles - I have recently replaced everything (except wiring, which I was told by my mechanic was in good condition, the coolent temperature Sensor, and the parts that deal with cabin heating) in the heating and cooling chain. New parts include - Radiator, Radiator cap, Radiator Fan (electric), Coolent Temperature switch, Thermostat, Radiator Fan Control Relay, and the water pump and my car is still overheating. Can anyone help me out with what might be wrong?

Try bleeding the air out by doing below

Always bleed air from cooling system after replacing coolant. Set heater for maximum heat. Remove radiator cap. Loosen drain plug and remove drain bolt (if equipped) from engine block. Drain coolant reservoir. Fill coolant reservoir to MAX mark with 50/50 water-coolant mixture. Loosen bleed bolt and fill radiator up to base of filler neck. Close bleed bolt when coolant flows out without bubbles. Tighten bleed bolt. With radiator cap removed, start and operate engine to normal operating temperature. Add coolant if necessary and check for leaks.

Don't work we'll work on a possible leakage thru H/Gasket/Head/Block.

If you're not losing coolant thru leakage then its being burn internally-any white smoke after engine is warmed-up or water dripping from tail pipe.
