You changed the radiator and themalstat on your 1996 Hyundai elantra and its still running hot what to do now?

Cars & Vehicles
Thermostats
Hyundai Elantra
Radiators

change the radiator cap. Did you check the water pump to see if it is pumping correctly? Did you check the cooling fan for proper operation? Did you bleed all air from the cooling system after adding fresh coolant. Did you install the thermostat correctly, (Spring down)? And lastly, does it possibly have a blown head gasket? I put this in my Watch List, and will await you reply.
