Question 1990 300 E - overheating - vapor lock???

1990 300 E - overheating - vapor lock???

car sat for awhile. fluid was low, so i filled her up and she over heated first time running... check thermostat housing, thermostat was corroded closed. bought new thermostat, $25, ans she ran new again. three days later im having overheating problems again, all electric and motor manual fans are working. filled with coolant and water, topped her off. and im very confused on the random coolant line going all over that car, isnt there a better way of routing these???? maybe new coolant and water, etc... got air and created vapor lock???? - water pump is good for sure, when i pour water dfown into it, it comes out the top of the head, so it works fine. just confused onwhat it could be...
