Based on what you are saying and what you have done so far you have a cylinder head gasket leaking combustion gases into the cooling system, this type of leak causes a gas bubble to form around the thermostat and then it will not work properly. Also when this type of leak is the problem there will be no white smoke out the tailpipe or coolant in the oil, the gasket only leaks on the compression stroke.

Probably a blown head gasket. If excessive steam is coming out of tail pipe and coolant is disappearing that would be my guess. Also engine compression can leak by head gasket into cooling system causing water to blow out of radiator. Make sure though when you purged air out of block you thought about it having to fill heater core. It could be trapped air in system. I used to take temp sensor out and fill block until coolant came out of it.

Im having isues with my 1994 acura legend over heating


check and bleed your coolant. take of radiator cap, start the car witht the heat on defrost and set to max and let the car fully warm up to operating temp adding coolant to radiator as needed. If that doesnt fix it then change your thermostat. $20 part from autozone with gasket. to do this: follow upper radiator hose to motor, where it connects on is your thermostat housing, unbolt the thermostat housing and replace thermostat. Simple procedure but do it when the car cools down or you'll burn your hands with coolant (which will pour everywhere when you take the hose off) after that is done, rebleed system and add coolant as needed. not hard to do at all

My 1994 Acura Legend keeps running hot. Gauge


When the car is completely cool,check the electric fan(s) for smooth rotation.

Clean/check/change the thermo sensor,contact and wire.

Excavate air pocket in coolant system / check for head gasket leak

This test will kill two birds with one stone.

===

MAKE SURE THE COOLANT SYSTEM and ENGINE IS COLD!

RAN THIS TEST IN A WELL VENTILATED AREA ONLY!

You will spill some coolant during this air pocket purge test.......BE KIND TO THE ENVIRONMENT and ANIMAL please clean up after the test!

===

Put the front end on a pair of ramp or park your car on a VERY STEEP HILL (radiator facing top of the hill) .

Top of the coolant reserve tank

Let it ran for 10-15 minutes.

Monitor for air pockets escaping from coolant reserve tank.

Small amount of bubbles is OK at 1-5 minute mark

After the thermostat open up (after 195 F warm up) at
5-12 minute mark or after high idle you should see less bubbles.

If you do not see any in rush of bubbles then your thermostat may be partially stuck or rusted badly inside the thermostat hosing.

Give the thermostat host few gentle taps.

If you see larger bubbles surfacing after 15 minutes then should do a hydrocarbon (HC) dye test to test for potential head gasket leak.

Let engine cold down and top off coolant reserve tank.

Start monitor for coolant lost

===

A coolant flush is require every 2 years or 24,000 miles.

I recommend the thermostat that has a relief pop-let to reduce the change of burst radiator and coolant hoses.

Make sure you get a new thermostat gasket,black RTV and fresh coolant for the job.
