Overheating

Im posting here since the other thread area seems pretty dead. So I changed to a new radiator,new thermostat everything seems to be fine but it wants to overheat? Water pump is good also. Could there be something I'm missing? Oh and it's a N/A 2.3 with 106k.

It may be running lean, how does it run?? Is the idle normal? Any hesitation when you mash the gas?
Change the oil check it for coolant.

Did you put the thermostat in correctly? A buddy of mine put one in backwards once.

Yeah, you may want to get a timing light and check the timing.
