So the fans will just keep running and it keeps heating up? But it doesn't heat up going down the road? Sounds like an air flow or water flow problem to me. Thermostat should be changed also, use Subaru brand. Maybe you have air in the system from when water pump and radiator changed. Was the system burped to get air out.
