My car keeps running hot, we changed the thermostat about a month ago along with the heater core, my car still runs hot, to the point where it cuts off. Now ive noticed last night that the check engine light is on and all of my warning lights flash on and the car bogs down sometimes cutting off mid-driving! Please help!

Do you
have the same problem?

We need the code.

From the sounds of it, I would think you have a blown head gasket from the overheating.

Yes it would.

A parts store can pull the code for free.
