Try replacing the thermostat again, but get a Motorcraft (OEM) thermostat from the dealer or Ford Parts. The aftermarket ones are slightly smaller and don't open up all the way and cause overheating. Even though the parts say they fit the Mark VIII, they don't sit right on the housing. Trust me on this one and good luck with the repair.
