Exclamation 92 camry xle v6 over heating problems advice would help

i have a 92 camry v6 xle and recently the car over heated and the radiator cracked. I've replaced the radiator and thermostat, and had the water pump changed with the timing belt last sept. and the car is now leaking and still overheating. Can anyone give me advice on what cold be wrong. All the hoses are still new.

Why did the engine overheat? Did the radiator crack first (a not uncommon event), then the engine overheat?

Not sure the engine coolant system has a air bleed valve but if it does try bleeding the cooling system.

Make sure a head gasket did not blow as a result of the overheating (this does happen on this engine).

Cooling fans.....that's what happened to me. Radiator burst. replaced thermostat, raidator, cap ect, thermo sensor at bottom of radiator......still no fans activating. Then I discovered that by wriggling the temp switch right next to the left of the coolant temp sensor, the green one, the cooling fans turned on. They are now back to their old non-working state after a test drive. But i believe the problem is simply replacing that unit to the left. Problem: Any one know what it's called so I can buy one?

Are the coolant fans electric or hydraulic?

The switch to control the fan would be a "water temperature switch." The switch is on/off. It has two wires.

The coolant temp "sensor" has its resistance vary with temperature. This type of sensor is for the dash temp gauge or the engine computer.

One is a switch, the other a sensor.
