Find the bleed screws on the engine and bleed the coolant system of air.once the air is gone from the cooling system the engine should cool fine,also check to make sure the cooling fans are coming on when they are supposed to.

My car was over heating I went and change the thermostat it was shot. went back to normal.

I think that your engine may have seized up. If the new thermostat was installed in the correct direction, I believe that the radiator was plugged up, which caused the engine to over heat. But it could also be that the impellers in the water pump have eroded away. I have never heard of a sensor that shuts off the engine during an over heat event. Excessive heat may have damaged the new thermostat.

My eclipse has been giving me problem for a while now but now it woint even run and need a car for work. So one day when i was driving the car just dies. It turned over but would not start then fter like...

it most likely is your engine management computer
it tell the motor everything it needs to know and all the sensors lead to it.
it can tell the can not to start cause it thinks it is going to over heat and many other things.
if it was just the idling then i would have said the IAC sensor
if it was just the stalling and not restarting i would have said the thermostat button but both i would blame it on what computed what the sensors send the management computer
if this dose not fix it then i don't know what would
the only other thing i can think of is the throttle body but this would decrease power quite a bit if you still have full power when the car runs then its not this
i am poitive the computer is out
hope this helps
