It was overheating, so I bought and had replaced a new thermostat, also a new water pump. The motor isn't feeling hot, but yet the meter on the dash is showing it's hot.

No it is not boiling over. It is just the gauge. I've replaced the thermostat, and water pump. What can I do?

Use a digital volt/ohmmeter-Why don't you just bring her in

I don't have the extra cash to spend. I'm a low income ****** of 2, trying to make it. I bought the Coolant/Temperature sensor today to put on it, so maybe this will fix it! : )

Did you replace the CTS -if it continues have it block and pressure tested-Could be the temperature gauge is out of calibration
