Re: Ford Tarus overheating

The "hoses were plugged" and you don't think that is a problem?

The thermostat is in the car for a reason, and that reason is to recalculate
the engine coolant through the engine UNTILL it reaches operating
temperature, at that point it will start to release coolant from the engine
to the radiator, but if you have no thermostat, your engine will never reach
operating temperature because the coolant is already sent to the radiator.
not good for mileage.

I would suggest that you take the car back to stock. Unplug the hoses and
properly install the thermostat - if put in backwards you will have heating
