Can drive the car 10 miles one day and no problem. Drive 10 miles the next day and it over heats. Thermostat was replaced but didn't help.

Do you
have the same problem?

When the fan comes on when it gets hot Does the fan blow out really hot air out of the fan?Also have you checked to see if the radiator fins or condensor fins are blocked with debris like sand bags etc?Also when it gets really hot are the upper and lower radiator hoses getting really hot?
