Q: CAR IS RUNNING HOT. on 1992 Plymouth Acclaim

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I changed the thermostat and the radiator fan is still blowing cold air when the gage is showing hot. Sometimes when the fan goes on it is blowing hot air off the radiator and that is when the gage is showing the temperature to be in the middle like it should be.I also got the sensor on the engine changed. I was told the relay is working fine.
What is my next step to be? Could a new thermostat be faulty?

Yes, replace your thermostat. This may or may not be the problem, but it is possible and this is an inexpensive item that should be replaced regularly anyway.
Good Luck!
