the car overheats even after a new radiator and waterpump and even removed the thermostate.Also the car seems to have little power.

I had a similar problem. When the car is cold, remove the coolant cap and start the car up. Let it run until the water starts to circulate. Fill the coolant reservoir up and let it keep running. When your fans come on, see if it still overheats. This may be the solution because after cooling system work, the system sometimes becomes air locked and will not allow circulation. starting with the coolant cap removed, makes the system open.
As for the loss of power, try changing your mass air flow sensor. It is located right after the air filter.
Hope this helps
