overheating issue

My 2001 gt overheated so I changed the thermostat and waterpump. I tried to burp the system but when it gets to 200 it starts to overflow. Should I change the radiator? Their is no water in the oil and no leaks anywhere. Anyone have any ideas for this.

Did you get the thermostat in the right way? It may be backward and causing the problem. Any ideas what the cause of the original overheating was? May still be there. You may have to try taking the stat out and flushing the system.

therostat is in correctly flushed the system. just put in a new radiator and new overflow pressure cap seems okay so far. Fan turns on around 210 degrees and it turns on when i turn the ac on.
