I just brought it and had to get a new radiator got that out

Customer Question

I just brought it and had to get a new radiator got that out of the way , was going good until today , noticed the temperature getting high so i pulled over and waited till it cooled down . Then i topped it up with some water , then i noticed the fan staying on when i turn car off . So i only drove 5 min down road to shop and got some coolant and flushed radiator and then topped it up . It seemed like it was working but its still heated back up . should i replace the thermostat ?
