Solution to Overheating 1995 Mustang Cobra?

I have checked AND changed almost everything...

Changed the Thermostat, flushed radiator & refilled with 50/50, replaced water pump, replaced radiator fan motor, check gauge, replaced sensor, replaced radiator cap, ensured no blockage in grill, and ensured no head gasket leak (No water in oil, no oil in water).

Any suggestions? (Will update as more things pop into mind)

Have a radiator shop check the flow through of the radiator.

Even if you flush it there could be crap that has plugged the tubes and it is flowing less than spec.

Be sure that the fan is turning the right way. May want to pull the rad and have it roded or replaced. Also had you had any work performed before this happened? If so see if it may be related. IS it actually getting hot or is the gauge showing it. Install a manual gauge and get a real Temp reading, the gauge or sensor may be bad.

Check the lower radiator hose. These will age & get soft, then when the engine is running, the suction from the water pump will suck the hose flat, stopping all water.

After you turn the engine off, the hose will pop back into shape, and you can't see any problems.

Does it overheat all the time or under certain circumstances? Do the fans kick on at around 200 degrees or with a/c turned on? Was the T/stat the correct temp rating? Check for any air pockets in the system...some systems need to be "burped" or bled. You could try a product called WaterWetter which lowers cooling system temps by 20 degrees or so....racers and RV owners use it....parts stores sell it or buy online. The Grille may be OK but is the lower air dam under the bumper OK...a broken or missing one can cause problems by not forcing air through the rad.

i would hook up a mechanical gauge and see what that tells you. faulty guage? maybe a simple air pocket in the block?

it seems like you tried every option and theres nothing more i can think of.
