We have replaced the water pump, driver's side radiator fan, and the thermostat, and it still overheats within minutes!!! Can anyone give us some insight as to what else may be wrong? We thought that the head gasket could possibly be blown, but other than the overheating the car runs fine & there is no fluid in the oil?

Sounds like a blockage issue then. I would suggest disconnecting the radiator and see if you're getting good flow through it. Also check the engine block to see if coolant flows through it. I would suspect that you might have a blocked channel in the engine.

Either the system wasn't bleed through thoroughly enough, not enough water in the coolant mixture, or a blockage issue. Run the engine with the rad cap off until the fans come on 3 times. Top off with water as needed. Also make sure A/C temp is set to full heat.
