Question about Mercedes-Benz Cars & Trucks
Check your radiator and see if it is full . If not that could be the problem. Check your hoses and see if any are pinched.
could be an air lock in your system.
Water pump may not be working properly. Just an idea.
A plugged or blocked radiator will not let the fluid flow enough to heat all the time. Does your heat gauge go up where it should be if not your new thermostat may not be working right. Is it installed properly? I installed one upside down one day and it did the same as yours.
These are ideas only.

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.

It is not complicated, depending on what hands-on level of DIY on car. Here are what need to do, so you can estimate how easy or hard when you look through your engine. Drain all the coolant, remove the thermostat housing, remove the fan, belt. Remove the water pump pulley. There are 4 bolts to hold the water pump in place.If you think you can take them out and put them in without removing the AC compressor then you can do it. I did it twice without removing the AC. The pump was fine for the second time, but for leaking seal. At dealer, it is easier to access from the bottom since they have a lifter. But it is doable at home. Have fun if you decide to do it.
