Thermostat possibly stuck open. Another possibility is the heater core is clogged. I would recommend you perform a complete cooling system service. Drain and flush the system with the heater set to high. Replace the thermostat, and install a 50/50 mix of coolant and distilled water. Bleed all air from the system.
The way the unit operates depends on the type of thermostat installed. Normally, they use a two stage thermostat. In this case, when the thermostat senses a need for cooling the condensing unit starts in low speed. If the temperature at the thermostat does not drop fast enough, the condensing unit is switched to high speed. The timing of the changing of speeds varies with the thermostat and unit.

The thermostat is located under the engine where the lower radiator hose attaches to the engine block. Changing a thermostat is a relatively simple operation involving draining the cooling system and removing and replacing only 2 nuts. Since you are asking in this forum, you should probably have the job done by someone with experience working on automobiles. --Ken
Many things can cause an engine to run hot, make sure that the cooling system is full, that there are no leaks, make sure the cooling fan is operating properly, make sure that the there is nothing blocking air circulation thru the radiator fins, check for corrosion inside the radiator causing blockage and reduced cooling.

When 1990 Honda is running cooling fan does not come on but comes on when shut off thermostat and temperature switch changed?
If the engine is running hot, then changing the thermostat to a lower degree is not the answer. Use the exact same temperature thermostat that came from the factory. Now find the real cause of the overheating. Possibly the thermostat was partially stuck closed, or the radiator is clogged, water pump, blown head gasket, fan not working, etc. Do a complete service of the cooling system and find the problem.
Your heater is not working in your 2000 Malibu you flushed your radiator but that didn't work what next How do you change the thermostat if necessary?
You need to check your heater core, and blower this are the most probable causes When you flush the coolant on this car, you are supposed to remove the thermostat first-another fine GM concept. IF the there is no volume blowing through the vents, it is a problem with the blower system, not the cooling system. IF it isn't hot but blows okay, it is the cooling system. There is a bleed procedure in this…
