Ok, so, got the spark plug wires in teh correct order, so it starts up just fine. No problems there, now.
The problem is, the car overheats like crazy. I replaced the Thermostat, and even put a new radiator cap on it because the one that was there is really bad, and just didn't seal it.
The thermostat has a new gasket and anti-seize in the housing for a double secure hold.
I'm not certain weather the coolant is even going through the hosing or what. It gets hot, and starts to spit out whatever I put in there, be it coolant or just water to run it through the system. It'll be ok for a bit, but after a short time on the road, no more than 30 min, the car over heats.
My aunt has informed me that she did put 3 containers of the silver powder used to seal up any holes or leaks in the radiator, as well as a bottle of the liquid stuff. My current guess is that either it's blocked up by that crap, or the water pump. The vehicle has been doing this overheating bit for some time prior to that stuff getting added.
