3 weeks ago you found the upper radiator hose almost completely squeezed in on itself so you replaced the thermostat and upper hose!Also, the cooling system has been flushed and refilled and the cap has been replaced! Could be a partially plugged radiator. Flushing will not always take care of this. I would check the thermostat in a pot of water and thermometer prior to install. I have installed faulty new thermostats. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. thermostat in upside down ? spring should be in the block dying fuel pump

Car overheating and no heat?

No thermostat, no coolant, no waterpump. Basically you have no coolant circulating.

If you are replacing a water pump will this stop a car from overheating?

Replacing a bad water pump can help to stop a motor from overheating. Hopefully that was the cause of the overheating. If it does not stop the overheating, try replacing the thermostat. Make sure you have the proper mix of antifreeze and water, the radiator filled with it. Check the level of coolant FIRST. Next, the hoses, and third the thermostat. Then, disconnect a hose and see if, by starting the vehicle, if there's water pressure. If not, its water pump time!
