It sounds as if the car is air locked. Perhaps there was a problem before all of these parts were change. I'd be concerned with the head gasket, or an external leak from some where else. Keep looking. If there is not physical evidence of any leak. Then try to re bleed the cooling system. If that still does not work, then i would be suspect of the head gasket. Unfortunately, you will need to replace both head gaskets on the car. good luck!

Sounds like a head gasket blew out or possibly an intake manifold gasket if that engine has a cooling loop through the intake manifold. Check if oil is white/brown and looks like a milkshake.

Coolant is blowing out res. cap when I rev the engine.


May be faulty intake or head gasket. Replace thermostat, fill up system onece with antifreeze with car running, let level go back down, and fill up again. Check plugs and wires

check the thermal switch for the second fan.disconnect the fan first and put 12v to it and see if it works.these are things i would check....fuse,relay, fan thermal switch(usually on the radiator,,and the fan itself.one fan is the cooling fan,the other fan comes on with the air conditioning.

Car over heating and over flow in resouvier


Whats really gunna **** you off is the part you probably need is about 5$. Inside the radiator hose is a spring loaded "switch" that supposed to expand when it becomes hot and let radiator fluid thru. Sometimes these springs freeze up and don't let the fluid thru. IE probably your problem.

Are you sure you put the thermostat in the right direction? The 195 degree copper bulb shold be on the bottom side. If it is a stock one.
