coolant problem

I have a 99 BMW 323is. I have been having problems with the car running hot. I have replaced all the obvious, radiator, thermostat, hoses, bled the radiator. It still is running hot. I am about to put another themostat on it because it now acts like it is stuck. Does anyone have the answer to this? I have some block seal I think I will run throught it when I get the thermostat on.

Is it K-Seal ?
DON'T use it until you are sure it is NOT the thermostat... It might seal it in, either the closed or open position...
I used k-seal to cure an overheat prob and it DID sort it out, but never underestimate the value of a free-flowing thermostat (as cheap as they are)... !!

By all-means use this product... I recommend it...
But if a component has ALREADY failed then you are throwing shit into a fan mate....
