1991 Pontiac Sunbird Question: OVERHEATING

OVERHEATS AFTER DRIVING 10MILES CHANGED THERMOSTAT RAN WITHOUT THERMOSTAT -
Answer 1
running without thermostat will cause it to overheat. if you drive it overheating you can bet you have done internal damage to the motor. hard to say what the problem is at this point. take it to a shop and have them check for a clogged radaitor and a leak down test on cylinders. Roy -
