Follow the hose from the radiator and look for the roundish cover on top of the motor. Yes it is the logical way to start at the thermostate

My 2003 Ford focus blew a head gasket a while back. I got fixed that, changed out the water pump, thermostate, water resevoir, and a few hoses. It started to overheat again, but the thermostate wasn&#

If you got a blown head gasket, water is getting mixed with your oil, pretty much ruining it, and your oil's viscosity will be affected, causing oil pressure to drop and your light turns on.

How do you know your car is overheating if it's not showing in your gauge?

When replacing blown gaskets there are a few things that is best to do, like sandblasting the heads, clean, scrape block and use proper torque an sequence, only removing old gasket and placing new ones won't fix the issue, those gaskets go through extreme conditions, expansion, temp changes, etc, they need to be put mindfully. I mention this because it seems you changed a lot and ended up with the original issue...

If your gasket is blown you need to fix that asap, then identify where is your coolant leak/blockage that causes alleged overheating, doing a coolant flush might help. Good luck.

My car keeps over heating and i dont have heat

The first thing is to check the coolant level, make sure engine is cold beefore removing the radiator cap, then start car with cap off and add as much as needed, this problem is not a bad thermostant, a bad thermostant would overhaet but would give heat, even if it was stuck open the heat would take while to get hot but then car wouldnt overheat, this problem one one of these problems, . low coolant or a bad waterpump, i have seen a few like this and the waterpump propeller rots away and coolant cant circulate, the last thought would be a bad head gasket but you would get heat when driving, so if coolant isnt low then waterpump is bad. hope this is helpful.

My temperature sensor warning light came on and my car ovrheated. I got a major tune up, the temperature warning light vame off, but the car still overheats when city driving. My gueass is that ia bad...

It is not a bad sensor, if
1-Inside your OIL cap has some milky stuff as a result from water mixing with oil from overheat.
2- You are losing water.
If both are happening, you have a blown head gasket. Bad news
If non of these happens, your are good, just replace the thermostate. Good luck.

At idle speed,the heater blows out cool air,but upon acceleration

1) Check antifreeze level !
( Open Radiator cap when the car is cold ! )
If low - Add. ( Not on your drive-way - as it will leave a greasy stain ! )

2) Your thermostat may be defective or missing........( May be taken out by someone who did NOT want you to know the car overheats........) Have the Thermostate checked at mechanic.

If you follow the top radiator hose to the engine. The part that the hose is connected to on the engine is the thrmostate housing. you'll find the thermostate underthat housing.
Good luck and hope this helps.

How do I change belt pulleys? Could a loosew belt cause the car to overheat?

Yes, a loose belt can cause a car to overheat. On some cars (likely that one, too) the belt drives the fan and the water pump. has repair manuals that should tell you step-by-step how to do this. You'll need the year, make, model, and engine size of the car to be sure.
