Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. First things first, did you bleed the air out of the system after you replaced the hoses and thermostat?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Coolant is bubbling then eventually it starts running hot
Chevy Mechanic: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 7 months ago

ok, you need to have a block test done to see if there is combustion gases getting into the coolant

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I had a shop do one they drill a bolt out of the thermostat housing for when I changed it a bolt broke off. They did a pressure test I believe and said the block was giving a different reading or something like that. Then they called back this morning and said I had a cracked head gasket
Chevy Mechanic: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 7 months ago

a cracked head? or a blown head gasket?

hows it going?

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Ima just put another motor in it I guess. Head Gasket work is expensive in Richmond, Va....2300! I found a motor and mechanic to put it in for 3000. What do you think??
Chevy Mechanic: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 6 months ago

If the engine failed the block test and combustion gases are getting into the coolant, verifying the head gaskets being the problem then yes, thats a decent deal.
