One possibility is that the thermostat was replaced with one that opens at a higher temp than the old one. I would suggest driving with cardboard in front of your radiator, cause everybody's doing it, but that's how I cracked my radiator, and sent my cars cooling system straight to hell, so do it at your own risk.

AnswerThermostat may be defective, is coolant level up? What is bled properly? Heater core may be partially plugged. I am assuming the the volume (force) of air coming at you is adequete and the temperature is just the problem. How often did you flush the cooling system while you owned it? AnswerSounds like an air lock in the cooling system. Rebleed the system ie. remove the rad cap and let the car idle for a half hour or so. You may see the temp gauge move around a bit, but just make sure it doesn't sky rocket and you will be fine. As well, check around the hose inlets on the engine side for bleeder screws. If any are found open them as they are vital for proper bleeding.Good luck. AnswerThe genuine Mazda thermostat for a 92 protege has a small valve and the normal large valve. It is made to keep the engine quite hot. Third party thermostats often make mazdas run cooler and provide less heat.

blown head gasket or even worse, a cracked head or two.. try filling radiator with fluid, then start it up. there should be a pressure relief valve on top of where you replaced the thermostat. crack it till it bleeds all air off, then there should be only fluid. gradually fill your radiator with fluid during this process. if water is spitting out of the fill hole, it's a cracked head

1994 Honda accord and the radiator was cracked and i replaced it and bled the air out It is now running hot when the car is in idle and it doesn't seem to run hot when i am driving?

Had the same problem on my 1991 accord. Replace the thermostat, gasket, and radiator cap. Also, get a gallon of coolant if your current coolant has been in there for more than three years. The thermostat is in the engine block. Simply drain coolant, remove the radiator hose from the engine - the hose that goes from the bottom of the radiator into the engine. There may also be a small spount that bolts into the block, remove the bolts and there is the old thermostat.

Also the thermostat could have been installed backwards.
