Why is my 2003 mitsubishi eclipse is overheating? At first I thought that it might be the radiator, so I replaced it with a new one but the car stills overheat. Then somebody told me it might be the thermostat. So I changed the thermostat and it still overheating The old radiator had a crack on the top next to the radiator cap. So I replaced it with a new one hoping that it would solve my problem but the car still heats up.
have the same problem?

Thermostat may be bad and in the worst case, you may have blown a head gasket from overheating.
Have a shop do a leak down test to verify the head gasket
