Question about Mitsubishi Cars & Trucks
Have cooling system pressure tested for external and internal-combustion gas leak that is interfering with the normal engine water circulation. You may have a warped cylinder head. remove and replace thermostat only when it is defective but replace with a new one.

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

I had the same problem with my 1993 Liberty LX. Remove the thermostat (located inside bottom radiator hose engine connection - take the connection off and thermostat is inside). Reassemble (minus thermostat), reconnect bottom hose. Slowly (very, very slowly) refill the radiator and remove the bleed plug ( located beside the top hose connection to the radiator - a black square plug with a phillips head cross in the middle). When the radiator is full and clear water (no air bubbles) is coming out of the bleed point, replace the bleed plug and then the radiator cap.
Run the engine for five minutes (approx) or until normal engine temperature is reached. Allow the engine to cool down and recheck the water level - fill if necessary ensuring that the bleed plug is open and clear water is coming out of that point. Replace Bleed plug and then radiator cap. Run engine for five minutes (approx) and then test dive. If the engine overheats keep filling the radiator until there are no air bubbles coming from out of the bleed point.
This fixed my overheating problem. Good luck and safe motoring.

feel of the top hose, if it's soft when the car is running and at operating temperature then it's probably air in the system, not allowing the pump to pick up the antifreeze. To get the air out let the car cool completely (like overnight) then fill the reservoir, leave the cap off and run the car until it comes up to normal operating temp. (watch to see you keep enough antifreeze so the tank doesn't go empty.
My 97 Aurora did the same thing and this fixed it.
