MITSUBISHI ECLIPSE THERMOSTAT PROBLEM

1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse • 162,000 miles

I have a 96 mitsubishi eclipse gsx and lately it haas been over heating. We run the car till it gets hot, temperature in the red, then feel the hoses. The top hose will be hot but the bottom will be cold. Is this the thermostat not working or is it something else?

It may be the thermostat but you driving it this way may have blkown head gaskets. Have it leak down tested to determine the damage
