Are you going by the gauge or is it truly overheating? If you can put a scan tool on it and check the actual temperature you may just find out that you have an electrical wiring issue or cluster problem. If not you need to get a true cooling system flush/backflush to clean out any and all obstructions (possibly in the heater core?) and then re-fill with a good coolant mix with distilled water. You've replaced your other 2 possible causes already

    Also removing your thermostat is not fixing the problem. Put it back in and make sure it's facing the right direction

I have a 202 dodge intrepid just put new ratiator and water pump has been sitting for a year overheating only fluides coming frcontainer that i put water in


Watch the water in the radiator without the cap on while the engine is running. If you see bubbles then a head gasket is blown. If you don't see water moving rapidly, then the thermostat is stuck closed.

OVERHEATING ON 91 BLAZER


You would have air pockets with a new thermostat and none if you leave it out.
Are you sure you are burping the cooling system with the new thermostat installed ?
Its also possible you have a leaking head gasket or other problem that is being amplified by having the thermostat installed. Something may be heating up with and not without.

1994 Camaro: My engine is overheating. Ive flushed the ratiator...


It could be the radiator fan motor if all sensors and relays have been changed.......unplug the coolant temperature sensor the fan should come on and stay on unless the motor is bad or it is not getting electrical current.

I have a 2000 montana and mine was doing the same thing. I replaced intake manifold gaskets, thremostat, and water pump. Turns out it my heads were warped. I had them taken to a machine shop and it has seemed to fix my overheating problems.
