Question about Jeep Cars & Trucks
It sounded like a vibrating noise and started to overheat
Refill radiator with engine cold.
If no drop in water level when full and with the cap off, then restart the engine.
Does the water spout out of the radiator like a small geyser? If so, then you likely have a failed head gasket or damaged cylinder wall.
If the level drops but does not spout out of the radiator, then check the water pump for damage and leakage.
If you find it difficult to find the source of the leak, then you may need to use a radiator pressure testor to apply pressure to the system, to allow the leak to become more obvious.

Since the car ran well for a month after you put the new thermostat, I would say that you have a leak somewhere. Look under the car every time you park, and keep filling the coolant. It is possible that you have a more serious problem, but until you figure out what it is, this may keep you on the road. Check the fluid level every day. Tell us what happens. Also make sure your oil is not milky and there is no oil in the radiator - if this happens, you have serious problems.

When engine running, ensure no engine combustion gas bubbles in coolant resevoir (if so, the head gasket is blown).
Check cooling fans are operating ok (when required when car warms up), if not check
2) relay operation,
3) heat sensor switch.
When re-filling cooling system, bleed off any airlock as necessary.
Check for collapsing (soft) coolant hose on suction side of waterpump when engine revs above idle.

most likey if you changed the thermostate and gasket and antifrezze and water your fan clutch has gone bad an needs to be replaced the clutch works on a friction device the hotter it gets the more the friction plates ingauges causeing the clutch to turn much faster thush cooling the engine. Without this cooling action this will destroy the engine and trans misssionsdm without this cooling so this is true to this date the cooling in fan fan has to work to be able to keep engine cool. now days they call it a puke tank to keep from burning up the engines and is designed so that hot water is pushed out of the tank into the overflow tank so that when it gets hot there us bo waiting for the fluid to be sucked intothe radiator it's done automatically and saves the engines. So small changes have stuck with us and saved the lives of people in the miliatry and in the non milataray systems..

That is really quick, like you are getting no water flow at all. Make sure that a radiator hose is not collapsing enough to stop the flow. If possible on that model, take off the radiator cap and shine a light to see if the water passages in the radiator are clogged up with rust or sediment. If this started after the new thermostat was installed, make sure it was not put in backwards.
