If your Toyota Matrix is still overheating, it’s possible that the head gasket is damaged. It could also be due to a faulty water pump, air bubbles inside the coolant lines or obstruction inside the coolant lines. It’s probably best to have a professional mobile mechanic complete a car is overheating inspection so they can determine why this is still happening.
