Engine and vehicle continues to run hot. Have replaced the radiator, have replaced hoses and also I have replaced the thermostat and the vehicle continues to run hot and continue to lose fluid.

Hi,

Can you tell me where you see the fluid loss coming from? Also, is there any white smoke from the exhaust when the engine is running?

Do me a favor. Take a look through this link. It describes how to check for a head gasket issue, which can cause overheating. I need you to check for the symptoms mentioned.

Also, here is a link that explains how to repair a coolant leak. It explains how to locate one.

Let me know if this helps or if you have other questions.

Take care,
Joe
