Thermostat is going/gone bad. Change and all will be well.

Re: Overheating ???

Thermostat not opening up and letting coolant to the engine so definately a reason that engine may be overheating. Or running increadably lean...

Please don't for the sake of every dsm owner that might own the car after you. There is a reason mitsubishi and all over car company use thermostats. Just go to autozone and buy the damn 4 dollar thermostat and .40cent gasket and be done with it.
