Hi amanda728,

The symptoms don't look good, it indicates a highly possible head gasket problem.

Did you bleed the system after replacing the components listed?
Was the radiator cap replaced and of the correct range?
Is the cooling fan working?

No they did not bleed teh system. And the whole radiator was replaced with a brand new one and it came with a new radiator cap.

With cold engine, remove the radiator cap and top up with coolant if the level is low. Turn heater to maximum and start engine without the cap.

When level drops, top up coolant and continue to run till the coolant level stabilises. Close radiator cap and retest. When engine is cold, recheck the coolant level again. Top up if necessary, it should not be short by too much.
