For the I6 engine, I've never had a problem after changing waterpumps and the stat for that matter. Don't lose enough coolant to really make a difference. 2 things come to mind, 1 is, how do you know it's overheating, scanner hooked up to see real temp? Our gauge is useless really. Lucky for you, the 05' model temp sensor, is right above the stat. If a scanner shows it running hot, very well could be a bad stat out of the box. Stant makes a good thermostat.
