Bad Water pump,more than likely,if thermostat good.
But you can get a bad thermostat even if it's new check them yourself if you don't know how Google it or I can explain
Did you replace the radiator cap? I've heard of the cap coursing just such a problem.
Check your coolant with motor idling, radiator cap off when still cold. When temp rises above normal, look in radiator (not overflow), coolant should be cycling. If not, then the thermostat isn't opening. Replace...
This car has a special air bleed procedure trapped air creates hot spots thus hot running. If it's fine driving, and overheats in traffic then the cooling fan or fan relay is junk
If you recently changed your thermostat, water pump, radiator or overflow coolant tank, recommend you purging the system. To do so, drive the car around the block (in order to warm up the engine) open the purge valve, located in front of upper intake manifold. If you then can't locate the purge valve, it's sitting right behind the upper radiator hose. Ensure you have a 10MM deep socket and loosen the valve (don't completely remove it) and remove the coolant reservoir tank cap (if engine is hot - be very careful of the pressure). once the air is purged out of the system, look a the reservoir tank and if coolant level is slow, ensure you add additional coolant.
Put new waterpump and thermostat in my 2006 chyrsler 300 3.5 and still overheats
