The thermostat problem caused overheat, because overheat your head gasket maybe broke up and leak,
1. check the tail pipe see if there is steam blow out.
2. check the oil cap,see if there is steam white bubbles
If you got, that probably your gasket broken.
3. put a piece of cardboard in the front of the engine, open the radiator cap. fillup water.
4.start the engine and let's run at least 30 minutes, see whether it overheat or not.
5. check the radiator water, see if it is circling. if it is not circling, probably the water pump doesn't work.
6. you will find out whether leak or not.
The cheapest way to stop engine gasket leaking, if it is not too big, go to parts store get a bottle of good stop leak and try it. sometimes you can stop the leak area. good luck. Frank

There seems to be an air pocket or no antifreeze in engine block. Try this method disconnect upper radiator hose and pour water directly into hose down into engine block until it full. when its filled reconnect hose and fill up radiator. as the vehicle warms up open bleeder valve on the thermostat housing and release air from system. open slowly and BE VERY CAREFUL WATER WILL BE HOT, bleed until you get a steady stream opening and cosing valve. However if all of this don't work. You may have a bad pump. Good Luck

1- Open the oil cap, if you see the milky stuff inside the cap then the engine is having a head gasket problem since water is mixing with the oil thru head gasket. You need this fixed ASAP.
2- If there is no milky stuff, you are still lucky.
3- Now you need to check if you have a thermostate or/ and radiator clogged up problem.
4- Take off the thermostate.
5- Reconnect the upper hose.
6- Run the engine
7 Squeeze the upper hose to feel water flowing inside.
8- If there is water flowing, the problem with the thermostate. Put in the new therostate. It will solve your problem.
9- If there is no feeling of water flowing then you have a problem with the water pump or the radiator clogged up.
10- To check if the water pump is working or not. Wait for the engine cool down.
11- Disconnect the upper hose from the radiator.
12- Turn on the engine and continue feeding water thru the radiator cap.
13- If water was pumped out at constant flow, your water pump is good. Change the radiator since it gets clogged up. This is your problem.
14- If water is not pumped out, the problem is the water pump. Change the water pump since this is the culprit.
Since the troubleshooting is involved intensive labor, most shops are just replacing part at your customer expense by replacing one after another. To be ahead of them, you troubleshoot the problem then tell them to change the correct part. Good luck .
