Did you bleed the air out of the system after replacing the thermostat and topping up the coolant?

The most common cause of this following work on the cooling system is an airpocket preventing the correct circulation of coolant in the heater matrix.

To bleed the system all you need to do is remove the cap from the radiator or overflow tank and allow the engine to tick over for 10 to 15 minutes. Ensure the heater dial is set to max and fully turned on when doing this. This will expel any air that is trapped in the cooling system. Top up the coolant as the air is expelled.

Other possible causes are a faulty thermostat (stuck open) even though it is new or one that is incorrect for your engine or the incorrect temperature thermostat has been fitted.

Also your cooling system may need to be flushed if there is debris in the radiator or heater matrix.

Let me know how you get on.

If the problem is resolved please leave a vote for the solution.

    Ok. As the engine ticks over make sure to top up the coolant if a lot of air is expelled and let me know how you get on.

2000 ford excursion v10 2 wheel drive...shakes when braking moderately. It doesn't do if you brake hard or lightly. Just had the tires rotated too

Brake rotors warped. Have machine turned or replace. Don't use semi metal pads. They create excessive heat that warps the rotors.

2000 ford excursion v10 driving down the road

Honestly you should send it into the dealer. I don't think guessing will help you. Typically it is a dirty connection into the steering column (behind the ignition key) But diagnostics need to be run and a look at the VSS system (through a good scan tool) is needed to confirm.
