If it only overheats when you are creeping along but is fine on the highway, odds are it is the fan clutch.

Same thing happened to me, and I couldn't figure it out as I had replaced the entire cooling system. I got a bad fan clutch, make sure you store clutch in the upright position, do not lay flat...
