If you changed the thermostat you may have corrected that overheating problem but in turn caused another. By draining the fluid, you probably have caused an air pocket. Your car has a plastic filler tank with a screw on lid.On the new cars , after draining the cooling system or even part of it, you have to put a vacume on the system which sucks out the air then sucks in the fluid. Otherwise you will have an air pocket that you seem to never get rid of ,causing overheating. This can be done at your local dealer or any reputable service center. Dave
