The fan relay is fine, the fan motor was replaced. But the car is still over heating. There is an audible knocking noise coming from the cooling system itself. The engine heat will spike past 220 then for what seems like no reason it will suddenly just drop down to normal operating temp of about 160. Any Ideas?

In the last month alone, I have replaced the thermostat, coolant fan motor, and water pump. It still over heats and doesn't blow hot air. The heater core was replaced last year. The knock has lessened but it still overheats. What am I going to have to do next?
