Does it physically over heat ? I have had all these problems and changed everything you have changed inc water pump and radiator. Thought I had it sorted til the other night when the temp gauge went to 120 again. However I had recently bought an infra red thermometer so I left the car running and pointed the gadget at the top hose and low and behold it registered 80 c. I left it running and the fans eventually came on the temp gauge said 130c the thermometer said 85 c so I guess the bloody gauge is intermittently going mad. It's only cost me about £800 and 9 months to find this out.
