Ive recently replaced my thermostat and it still is overheating and I can smell the coolant in the car. Also when buying a thermostat I was told that sometimes you can get a bad one is this true. Also what could make it overheat
Do you

Could be a defective new thermostat or one of the following, water pump defective, radiator clogged, cap and air in the system if all checks out-Get it block and pressure tested

If you can smelll coolant could be leaking somewhere externally
