Question about 2004 Hyundai Elantra
My car is overheating within 1 mile of the starting point of travel from a cold start \\ no visible leaks or spots on ground when running or otherwise.. oil is not milky looking and all fluids are topped to their proper levels\\ radiator hoses feel as though they have pressure when the car is running \\ could it be a faulty thermostat or something else\\\ and if it is a themostat where in engine compartment is it located\\ have replaced them in Humvee s before but not 4 bangers
If the upper radiator hose is cool, but the engine is overheated than this could be a sign that the thermostat is stuck. By the way, the thermostat is at the end of the upper hose in the metal housing. There are two bolts holding it to the engine.

Thank you for your help! I took my car in for a second opinion and the mechanic said it was the thermostat! It is now running great and only cost me what the first mechanic said it would just to look under the hood for the head gasket! I saved so much money! Thanks again! :)

Well I thought it might be the thermostat and it was. After I replaced it in my driveway with some simple tools, and an inexpensive part, along with a gasket, the problem was immediatly solved.
