Are you putting the thermostat in correctly? It it will not work backwards.
And to confirm that there isn't a different problem, take the thermostat out all together and see if it overheats.
Engine not fully warming up is not usually caused by the thermostat. Stats usually fail closed, not open.
You will want to check the water temperature sending unit or gauge after verify the water temperature with an external calibrated thermometer. You can attach and insulate the external thermometer to the housing where thermostat is located.
Reply back what you figure out. I will be happy to help you further.

the thermostat can be easily changed from up top, the T-stat is located at the engine end of the upper radiator hose under the flange the hose connects to. Make sure u follow manufacturer's cooling system bleeding procedures when you refill after the T-stat is changed out.

are your fans or fan working if not it will get hot. I assume you have electric fans or fan if so make sure when it starts to overheat the fan or fans come on if not check the fuse for the fans or relay, breaker, wiring itself.
