Dear customer, do you have problems with the alternator as well? Or the problem is just overheating on the engine.

The thermostat is a thermal valve in charge of open and close the lass ofwater/coolant to the engine, to allow when the vehicle is cold, gets warm quickly and when it is hot allow to get cold quickly to its normal functioning temperature

When we install in a bad way the thermostat, it could produce overheating failures as the ones you have

Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 4 months ago.

I would like to indicate you another aspect that I am observing bin your query.
When we replace important parts of the engine cooling system, it is advisable to replace the hoses of the system because with the time they tend to clog with dirt and tend to brake up. Soz in addition to check the thermostat, I recommend you to replace the hoses.
Have you understood dear customer?
