Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Engine is overheating within minutes.  Took to mechanic after turning the car on in the
morning only driving eight miles and needle going to hot and the car shut down.  They
put in a new surge tank/overflow tank and replaced with all new coolant.  New
waterpump.  I have taken it to 4 mechanics and all are stumped.

Air in the cooling system? Thermostat stuck? Water pump bad? Radiator fan not running? Could be many things.
