Does it overheat when you're sitting still or driving at speed? If it usually only overheats when you're sitting still but cools down some when you start going faster, the radiator fan(s) are to blame.

If there is smoke coming from radiator cap replace the cap. I replaced my thermostat and water pump come to find out I was just losing pressure out of my cap.
