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?

Coolant is bubbling then eventually it starts running hot
Chevy Mechanic: david craig, Auto Mechanic replied 10 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 10 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 10 months ago

a cracked head? or a blown head gasket?

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 10 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.
