Have you had the rad. checked ?
It could be you thermostat Have you have already checked oil level, and/ot changed oil recently Exaust restrictions can cause overheating
There are several things that can cause your 1992 Mitsubishi Eclipse to overheat. A malfunctioning water pump or a blown head gasket should be the next things that are checked.
check your fan clutch if its weak it will overheat
im having the same problem with my 1994 I've replaced the heater core,thermostat,radiator,i checked the coolant, and it's not over heating or nothing and still no heat lol
If the rad. has never been changed I would look there. Also, not knowing the history, did the car overheat before ? Why did you change the thermostat ? Is it possible that it never overheated before, but since the new thermostat it does now. Then possibly the new thermostat is defective. OR, it did overheat before and someone told you to change the thermostat, and it still overheats ? AT idle ? On the road, city or hi-way ? Again have the rad. checked. Sometimes even if the rad. looks good, it could be the main problem. Also, if it overheats on the hi-way only, it is possible the cooling fins on the rad. tend to bend and close and not let air through. If you give me more info on my Msg. board, we can find the problem. Good luck. Hope this all helps to find the problem. Also, be sure to mix your prestone at least 50/50. Or 60 prestone 40 water. This helps for cooling.
you should have your cooling fan checked or temp sensor or relay or check your coolant it might be low or thermostat might be no good it should be one of these
have you checked the fan
This question is not complete. . Need to know if you've replaced radiator, thermostat, hoses etc. Are you asking this question *after* yo checked the thermostat, changed, added or drained the system?
Have you checked the cars thermostat?
If the brake lights are not coming on in your car and you have changed the bulbs and the fuses with no results, you could also check the wiring in your '98 Chevrolet Lumina. The wires may be damaged or even broken.
If you replaced some of theses already ignore and go down the line # Not enough coolant # Water pump drivebelt defective or out of adjustment # Radiator core blocked or grille restricted # Thermostat faulty # Electric cooling fans blades broken or cracked # Radiator cap not maintaining proper pressure # Ignition timing incorrect
have the engine timing checked. if the timing is wrong the engine will overheat, are you loosing coolant?is the fan working, is the water pump working?
thermostat may be sticking and that cause the gauge to show hot, have it checked soon, you could be headed for bigger problems
Have you checked the thermostat? How many miles on motor? Ever changed coolant? Possible water pump issue?
did you use the right anti-freeze or you may have a bad fan/fan switch
Have you checked the computer codes? If so, what do they say?

You might have bad actuator that opens and closes airways.
If you have it removed you can put it in a pot of boiliing water and see if it opens.
Have the heads and head gasket checked possible thermostat in backwards
start with water pump. If its a V6 3.1L have the intake manifold gasket checked. You may have a coolant leak.
Bad thermostat maybe?
Check all the wiring and the Thermal Relay for the fan.
sounds like you need a new control switch or condenser
