This may sound far fetched but try a new catalytic converter. If you don't believe me, disconnect the bottom hose and run water from the top of your radiator. If water flows, its likely that your problem is not in your radiator and you should look elsewhere. Had similar problem on another vehicle and tried everything from radiator to thermostat to sending unit. Problem turned out to be the catalytic converter.
