Check your coolant level and see if it is down. If you have checked heads you will notice your engine oil beginning to turn milky white.
If you want a more complete check for cracked heads, plug all spark plugs, and if you can get a coolant pressure tester, pump it up to 12 or 13 psi and then crank the engine over. Watch for water to spray out of one of the cylinders.

You didn't mention replacing your water pump....that is what it is if you have NOT replaced it.

Testimonial: "Yes, I have bought the tool and pump to replace and after it is fix, I will contact you Thank you Tasha"
I can't give you any specifics on how to change your water pump, but I can answer your questions about the thermostat. Yes, the heat will work withou a thermostat. And yes, a car will overheat without one, especially in the summer months. The purpose of a thermostat is to allow cooler water to flow into your block, but also to allow the water adequate time to be cooled in the radiator. Without the thermostat, water is continuously cycling through your coolant system, getting hotter and hotter. Often I see people with malfunctioning thermostats jsut remove them, sometimes on the side of the road, just to get where they're going.
