I thought it was a bad thermostat so I changed it out for a new one. The car still over heat. I am for sure the thermostat is not opening. I cooked it in water and it does open up. Did this to two new thermostat.

Could this be a bad waterpump? causing the thermostat not to open?
If the waterpump does not work, does it block the water from going to the thermostat?

HELP!!!!!
make sure the belt is going the right way over the pump pulley. leave the car running for a bit not to overheat then. turn it off. add more antifreeze to it to top it off because air could be in the system....then make sure there arent anyleaks.....then holla back at me man!!!

I don't think you're likely to get a response on that one.
Hit the nail on the head...

I recently discovered a company in AU called hioctanedirect. I ordered a set of Hardrace adjustable inner tie rods, they had great customer service. I ended up saving money on the part b/c the US dollar is worth more there. Anyways, I figured I would take the time to share this since we are time traveling back 17 years lol...
