Why would a 2000 Chevy Metro keep overheating after having changed everything obvious such as thermostat hoses and caps?

Answer

When you replaced the "stat" did you put it in the proper way? This is a one-way valve. Is your radiator good? Does your water pump work?

Due to possible heat core problem. Does it run hot temperatures, up to 107 degrees, when stopped for extended period of time? Does it leak water & anti freeze on drivers side? Are u constantly having to fill with water? Remember to keep radiator filled and carry a bottle of water for emergency use.

If your engine is overheating and has no obvious leaks then suspect the thermostat. Of course you can remove it and check it, but the best thing to do is just replace it if it is suspect. It should be replaced every time you service the cooling system. when you turn your heater on the it wont blow hot air

its a 96 caprice already changed the thermostate fans are working Do you have an obvious leak,making the engine short of coolant? If no obvious leaks,the first place to look is the thermostat,these frequently fail shut,so restricting the coolant flow. You don't say what sort of car it is,or if this happens only in traffic (radiator fan not running) or just driving along,thermostat,blocked radiator,cylinder head gasket. Modern cars must have good quality antifreeze mixed to recommendation for good cooling and anti-corrosion.

The most obvious symtom would be overheating of the engine.

The spring should be towards the motor. A very few are not round and have to be in the correct position which is obvious. As long as the plate in the middle of the thermostat is round, it can be in any position.
