My car is getting hot ive had my head gaskets changed my water pump changed and my thermostat changed I dont know what else it could be it cranks and runs for a little bit then gets hot and stays hot

It may need the radiator flushed. I had a similar problem with a 1980 Dodge van, but without the water pump or thermostat problems.

Or, if it has a thermostatically controlled radiator fan that is not working.
