your car will continue to overheat without a thermostat. the water and coolant will cycle continuously, and not stay in the radiator long enough to be cooled. put a new thermostat in. what cap did you take off? the coolant reservoir? you should have no reason to remove radiator cap. add water through the coolant reservoir.

The thermostat was new:(:( The cap was silver, I thought it was the radiator cap??? ok.. Thanx

It was the radiator cap that I took off. Do you think it might be the head gasket?
