Put a scanner on it and check the temperature. Could just be a faulty temp switch or a dash problem. I had a car when you turned A/C to max, the temp would just rise, if you turned off, the temp would go down - in a couple of seconds. Temperature was ok though...

already did sensor is new as well and its boiling the water in the reservoir about the only thing I can think of is the converter is stopped up and heat is staying in the cylinder
