My car was over heating I went and change the thermostat it was shot. went back to normal.

I think that your engine may have seized up. If the new thermostat was installed in the correct direction, I believe that the radiator was plugged up, which caused the engine to over heat. But it could also be that the impellers in the water pump have eroded away. I have never heard of a sensor that shuts off the engine during an over heat event. Excessive heat may have damaged the new thermostat.

2007 sport trac over heats not leaking

check for an air lock in the cooling system after the thermostat replacement. If the thermostat was installed the correct way round ( body of the unit facing block water) then have a compression test done to check for head gasket or cracked head
other items to check is viscous fan hub if fitted , electric famn operation, blocked cores in radiator , fins missing or flaking from radiator

I have no heat I have a new thermostat and the heater core dosent leak.

When you say you have no heat is this referring to nothing when control is turned on? Does fan work? or you have no hot air at all.
If no fan could be a blown fuse [blower motor] thermostat could be installed incorrectly or faulty. Could be a faulty heater control valve if you have one not allowing hot water into heater core.

I installed the thermostat facing the block. is that the correct way to install?still not getting heat may be blocked core

Yes , you installed the thermostat correctly. However, I have installed a brand new thermostat from an auto parts store and it did not work.So...
  • pull out thermostat, place in pan of water and put on stove or barbecue grill and heat it up. thermostat should open when water boils.
  • if thermostat is functioning, reinstall.
  • check water pump for water flow
  • flush radiator and replace antifreeze
  • leave car running in park on warm day and see if electric cooling fans come on.

Over heating, i tried a new thurostat but did not help the over heating,

clogged radiator? bad water pump...cooling systems are quite simple...water circulates through the engine under the force of the pump...even if the thermostat is working it still needs the pump to move the water...still have the old thermostat? put it in a pot of cold water on the stove and turn on the burner...see if it opens at the proper temp setting...if the old one does you dd not need a new one..oh, I have installed brand new thermostats that were bad...
