    Need help with cherokee sport brakes

    Howdy yall,

    Remember I will be back! *SMILE* Changed the valve cover gasket went smooth! Now I changed the thermostat and The old ones shows 195 degree I went to Napa and bought me a 180 degree ones and dont need to be that HOT! Installed it fits in nicely.. Put brand new half n half Antifreeze the new kinds that is an Orange. I let it idle for a while to check for leaks and Inside the jeep the temp shows over 210 degree and was gonna climb to Red zone. I shut it off cuz the Antifreeze tank were vomiting, It didnt show any sign of cooling abit at all, so Now what did I do? I am curious if Thermostat might be defective? or what else you guys wanna suggest.

    Thanks for your time!!!
