Why is my Mustang Over Heating??

I have a 1994 Ford Mustang GT 5.0. I installed a new water pump and thermostat cause the water pump was leaking. It started to over heat a week later so thats when i just changed the thermostat. There are no leaks I beleive I have all the air out of the system. Im not sure what else it can be besides the radiator now. All of these parts are original. I have 109*** miles on the car. I just got the car not too long ago. It blows cold air when its turned on and hot air when its on. Any ideas?

when it over heats can you smell antifreeze? if all other ideas are debunked you may possibly be looking at replacing a head gasket, you maybe be having a small leak into your exhaust through the head, check for white smoke out of you exhaust, if there is any white smoke, go buy a new headgasket and put it on cause thats your problem
