The only two things I can think of is maybe the thermostat may be going closed or the fan may still not be running.

replaced the electric fan today. so far so good! drove for 2 hours and it stayed just below the half way point on the gauge.

I have a 2011 Crew hemi and it won't stop overheating. I've replaced the water pump, hoses thermostat, and it's still overheats. But now it's worse. Before I could just turn my heat on and it would lower the temp. But now it hits 244° in less than a mile. My relay I replaced also and that doesn't work now but my top hose is cool and stiff, and my bottom hose is hot. When I turn my heat on in the car it's cold. People are telling me it's a cracked head or a gasket. I took the thermostat out and it worked just fine to get me to where I needed to go. I know that's not a permanent fix but it helped me out. Please help?
