If you are sure the thermostat was installed right.meaning not backwards,then it could be the radiator cap is bad.

My first thought is new radiator and thermostat,water pump,then they put stop leak in it,bad,the stop leak may have clogged radiator and thermostat,now you get no circulation because of the anti leak,and i do under stand the car ran hot after they installed all of this,but i think they may need to check the thermostat,it is backward,s.

Ok a leak in radiator,agree,change it out,and have them flush all the stop leak out,then if it still runs out the cap,recheck the thermostat.

I will tell them tomorrow and see do you think it's a head blown gasket

If it is blowed head gasket,you will have coolant in the oil,or water coming out the exhaust.
