Yes I clear it and it comes back in anywhere from 1 hour to 3 days. While the car never overheats, it does get hot enought that I have to add some coolant which also leads me to believe it could be the thermostate. Can you test the theromostate the old way by putting it in a pot of hot water and see if it opens or does the electrical connection prevent this. I have never removed it so I am not sure what it is like. Only looked at the pictures of the part. Thank you for your response.
