Check the belt for excessive wear. The water pump usually is the culprit but the tension idler pulley bearing causes it too. Check them both.

Sounds like your car will need a new thermostat heater unit. Its all one piece and will need to be replaced as an assembly. It should be under warranty seeing as the car will not pass state inspection with this failure. It is computer controlled.

What does the diagnostic code p0480 mean on a 2012 chevy cruze ls

I have the same vehicle in an automatic transmission. My car had the same problem, and it turned out that the thermostat was stuck open and had to be replaced. A simple 90 minute trip to the dealer fixed this. Bonus for me, as it was covered under warranty. I hope this helps!

I have a 99 Ford Superduty 7.3 Diesel. It is making a really bad grinding/screeching sound just after it starts and is warming up. It wouldn't ******* off all the way even after the key was turned

indicates that the starter motor is stuck in the ring gear
possibly faulty starter relay or starter solenoid
pull the starter as the pinion over ride clutch is probably damaged ( noise ) and have the start circuit and relay checked
have the starter bench tested for serviceability by an accredited auto electrician
