Did you burp the cooling system after you changed the thermostat and topped off the coolant? If not, click my screenname, go to Tips and Tricks, and follow the procedure there that I've written up. If this wasn't done, it'd be a very easy reason why you still overheat.

    Any further info on your problem? I'm not sure what I said that earned a poor rating, based on the information you gave.

I have a 2004 Chrysler Sebring and it is running hot I have replaced the thermostat 10 times and it stills run hot no leak from the radiator but it bubbles back out ouf the intake jug

Take the car to a mechanic and have the coolant tested for hydrocarbons. A constantly overheating vehicle may often have a blown head gasket that causes hot gases to overheat the coolant.

Car is overheating--thermostat has been changed--radiator does not leak but it has had barrs stop leak put in--car does not seem to be getting coolant from the resevoir

Barr's Leak can be used to seal leaks, but if they put too much it can make a car overheat, unfortunately for you.

Try to flush out the system and replace any subsequent leaky parts to properly repair the cooling system and engine.

Hopefully, you don't have a blown head gasket, as this is a very expensive repair.

Good luck to you.

Changed thermostat and added coolant but 1997

could be waterpump?
i was going to say rad fan,but if so heater would be hot.
lack of coolant will make heater core to blow cold,if engine heats up with full coolant,usually means poor or no circulation.
water pump?
run engine with full coolant,at operating temp.with rad cap off and look in rad cap hole and see if there is movement of water inside rad.
[rad fan will not come on if water is not circulating through rad water pump?]

My 300c is overheating the fans do come on but eventually it still does overheat is it my thermostat or something else

It depends on whether or not the car has any other problems? If not then It probably is the thermostat. Either way I would check the coolant level as it should always be full.

Where is the thermostat in a 900s oh. 97 saab 900S Well my car was overheating and I notice in this model car if you need your oil changed it will overheat. So there is oil and all my fluids are full...

Oil change interval has nothing to do with operating temperature. If your coolant is full, feel the upper radiator hose, when the vehicle is up to temp. if cool , thermostat is back from that hose,

Look for air bleeds, and read owners manual, some cars have coolant bleeds. Also, heater on high when filling coolant or risk bubbles...

My thought is that your fans may not be kicking in. They should cycle on and keep temp low enough. test them.

1997 Chrysler LHS is overheating

If when you replaced coolant you noticed taht it fills slowly, the radiator could be internally blocked. Usually it can be flushed or if really bad, replace it. Also have the radiator checked for hydrocarbons...any in there tells you that there is a head gasket problem.

2002 Sebring - Engine just overheated!! Engine Sludge?

You need to have a coolant flush done to your engine. Overheating the coolant will brake down the properties of the antifreeze. Have a garage flush your cooling system thorougly and replace the old coolant with the proper OEM coolant. You will also need to replace your thermostat as overheating this unit will have damaged the thermostat. Replace the rad cap while your at it because there is a spring that regulates your cooling system pressure and it will now be weakened.
Just a note, Overheating your engine will cause damage to your engine. If the temperature gauge is near the red zone, stop the engine before any major damage can occure.

2000 sebring. Overheats with air conditioning on.

I just had my coolant flushed and my radiator cooling fan replaced. The car was slightly overheating and would "gargle" in the coolant bowl after I turned the engine off. It turned out to be the radiator was clogged up on one side.

I went full tilt and replaced the radiator, water pump, thermostat, radiator cap and timing belt. I have 85,000 miles on the car and it was about time to do these things anyway. It is running like a new car now.
