The overflow cap could be bad, not able to hold the required psi which will cause the temp to rise and run hot.

No heat, over heating

Not all new thermostats are actually working thermostats.It may require a second one.However,if the fan does not work it will be hard to tell.Is there a fan belt running to it?The goop that was added to it could actually plug up the the rad coils or rods and make it extremely hard to cool itself.It needs to be flushed.

2000 Lincoln Ls running hot

do you have heat when it is overheating? if not sounds like a head gasket. if u do have heat i would check the front of the radiator to see if it has debris stuck to the front of it

We changed out the thermast, and we are still over heating.but runs cool at an idoil,and starts to over heat when we are driven

Have you checked the coolant level? If your fluid is ok, when you step on the gas can you see the hoses from the radiator compress or see that they have coolant moving through it? If not your water pump may be bad. If you can, then your thermostat sensor may be bad. It is seperate from your thermostat.

Running hot, coolant blowing out reservior cap, changed thermostat same problem, removed thermostat problem ok,but now no heat. is there a coolant fill valve that needs to be opened when filling coolant....

first have the cooling system and cap pressure checked, system should hold pressure forever, and so should the cap, running without thermostat will cause uneven engine heat and affect emissions

1998 2.4 stratus no heat, temp gauge showing overheating, no knocking noises yet, car seems to 'run' ok. Changed thermostat still showing same symptoms.

Is the coolant at the correct level? Any loss of coolant so you must add it (if so, how much and how often). Do you have a air bleed bolt on the engine (usually near the thermostat). This could just be air in the system, which would cause both problems you describe (running hot, no heat). How long does it take to drive it for it reach overheating zone on temp gauge?

Take off your radiator cap (when the car is cold) and then start it. If it looks remotely like a geyser in Yellowstone, you have a blown head gasket.
