I have a 2003 mitsubishi eclipse. It is overheating. I have put in a new thermostat and there are no leaks under the car or when I open the hood. Any suggestions?

Do you
have the same problem?

Get a leak down test to confirm the motor does not have a blown head gasket from overheating.

The rad could be clogged as well.
