Car overheated and shook, then shutoff on me. Diagnostic said thermostat failed. Drove it without the thermostat, still overheated. Unclogged thermostat and still nothing. It starts rough but still overheats. What could it be?

Head gasket, intake gasket, clogged radiator, have pressure checked for internal leaks. This may be under warranty yet so ask dealer if it is ornot.
