Idk if that was sarcasm lol, but i'm getting it fixed tomorrow. Hoping that takes care of the overheating

And then I have to save up for coils, but from what i hear the damage it does on the axles....I might have to reconsider..

No, No sarcasm. I totally understand that even though the best deals tend to be online, if you're in a pinch it doesn't matter how cheap it is.

I just got the new thermostat in and the car isn't overheating anymore, i had it running and revving for about 10 minutes.

But let me tell you my fan clutch nut had been jabbed at by a flat head from whoever had the car before and we spend literally around 4 hours trying to get it out lawd jesus...
