New thermostat may be faulty. May be stuck open. Remove rad cap and with rad full and eng cold - start vehicle. The coolant should not circulate until eng reaches design temp of thermostat. Let me know if this helps you.
these engines love to overheat, the original thermostat opens to hot, i always replace it with a ford 300ci 6L engine thermostat it opens at a lower temp and really helps to fix the problem, belive me try the thermostat it is the same diameter you only have to take the old oring off, hope it helps please rate
If you changed the thermostat yourself and have noted that the lower radiator hose is cooler than the upper radiator hose, you may have installed the thermostat incorrectly or have purchased a faulty thermostat. A lower radiator hose that does not get hot (or as hot as the upper radiator hose) is a direct indication of a faulty thermostat. Please vote for this solution if you found this to be helpful. Thanks,
