If replacing the thermostat causes overheating either you are not
installing it correctly or it is defective. Even with the self bleeder
installed you SHOULD initially manually bleed the thermostat housing
AND the radiator. 175 is not overheating. In fact the motor is
SUPPOSED to run at 180-190. Overheating would be over 220. You can
check the thermostat. Stick it in a pot of water with a thermometer
and watch it as you heat the water up. You should see it start to open
at around the temp stamped on it. If you are getting bubbles in the
coolant, that is not overheating, you popped a head gasket (from
overheating). This is not what the self-bleeder is for. You will have
to replace the head gaskets and maybe have the heads milled.

Shouldn't this prevent any air that may be trapped in the system and
shouldn't it be self bleeding?
