ok, so I replaced the T-stat, T-stat housing, and radiator temp sensor. When I was tightening up the T stat housing the open end wrench touched the battery terminal (GRRRRRRRRR!!!!) and sent a shock thru the wrench. So when I was done I test drove it to find out that it overheats no matter what I do, so it's worse now. Now I think it's the T-stat not opening, even though it's a fail safe one. Seems like the lower hose was not hot, not cold, but not hot. Could the shock have messed up the T stat, or maybe I installed it incorrectly? I situated the gasket on the exact say way it was but didn't read on installation.

Any thoughts?
