over heating..

Hi, I have a 99 Toyota that blown a freeze plug going down the road. I replaced the freeeplug and car still was overheating. And hose on top was all vacuumed in suction. I replaced hose thinking it was weak.still got hot.
I took out thermostat and car ran good in a test run and did not overheat, without thermostat.
I replaced the thermostat with a new one, and now car overheating again, right away.
There is no oil in the water.
I don't know what to do next. Any suggestions would be grand... thanks

What model/engine do you have in that Toyota?
It almost sounds like an air lock in the coolant, but not knowing what engine (or having much to do with Toyotas to begin with), I can't say much more.

I treated it like a coolant lock and it working good now. I would never have thought.

Replace the rad car too. A bad rad cap will make your hoses collapse as well.
