1995 wrangler YJ problem

It keeps running hot we've tried nearly everything.
Replaced the radiator, replaced the coolant hose, cleaned the coolant jug, replaced the thermostat.
HELP!!!

What about the water pump, if its not circulating the fluid none of that other stuff is going to do its job either. Usually if ur overheating the water pump is ur culprit. Have u changed it as well?

To add to this...are your signs of overheating steam, overflow bottle filling up??? Or are you just going by the gauge??
Gauge or sensor could be bad?
Have you checked it with a thermometer or with a digital temp sensor?
Just throwing it out there

My gauge reads just below the red when it's actually warmed up and the true temp is a normal 210. Had to put a wired temp gauge behind the thermostat to figure it out. Like others said, do you have any actual signs of it over heating, besides the gauge?

The flush kits make it real easy to get the air out. Glad you got it going!
