I have an over heating problem with my Wrangler.

I took my 01 TJ to a repair shop because of a bad coolant leak; they replaced the water pump and thermostat. A month or so later I realized I was still losing coolant so I took it back to the same shop. This time they said that I had a crack in my radiator so they replaced that. After that repair there was annoying whistling sound when I would decelerate when driving over 65 mph but it wouldn’t do it consistently. I took it back to the shop again and this time they replaced the radiator cap. I test drove it on the highway and again it was whistling only this time it was much louder. I drove along speeding up and slowing down trying to figure out what the hell it could be when all of the sudden the temperature gauge shot up. I pulled over to check the engine and everything was hot as hell, the anti-freeze was bubbling like crazy. After it cooled down I started it back up to see if I could get back home. Like magic the whistling had stopped and the temperature remained normal but when I had gotten back home I checked the coolant again and it was real low. I took it back to the shop (one last chance), told them what happened and they seem very confused then ever.

Does anyone have any suggestion other than obviously finding a new shop?
