crack in the block maybe. How many miles?

are u getting a SES light,are u loseing collent,check the oil & see if it is milkey looking if so blown head gasket.is oil clear and exseffece steam comeing out exhoust,blown head gasket,if none of this could just be a bad fan clutch,as for the shuting down at high temp,is normal,is a factory safty system to keep from burning up the engine,also remove thermostat and drive for a few miles,just because u put in a new one dont mean it is working,if it is a STANT brand this is common for them.
