Started running hot,replaced thermostat and still runs hot.Top radiator hose is hot bottom is cold.

Did you put the thermostat in backwards? If you did, it wont open when hot. Thermostats look pretty much the same - with some minor variations. It's important to note the the side with the spring should be facing the (hot) engine and the other side facing the (cool) radiator as shown in the image below. If the spring side doesn't get hot - it won't open to let hot water from the engine flow to the radiator for proper cooling.

Thermostat location

It should be at the end of the radiator hose coming from the top of the radiator back to the engine, look for where the hose meets the engine. That thing that the hose is attached to, unbolt it. The thermostat is under it. Make sure that you clean all the old gasket off both the gooseneck and engine. Use sealant to seal the gasket, follow the directions. Make sure the spring side of the new thermostat faces into the engine, and make really sure that you prefill the engine with fluid BEFORE you put the thermostat on.
