could be...those two systems have nothing really to do with each other. the only real thing that could cause it i'd say is from the clutch kicking in making the motor work a bit harder. i'd swap the thermostat since they are so cheap and see if that helps

Yeah. That's the next step. Make sure u get a good one. Little cheap suckers can be bad new. Could even take it out and run it to see if it still over heats before u even went and bought one.

The right way would be to change it. U will be more than likely stuck with the brand that is sold in whichever auto parts store you go to. It'll be really easy to change. Just make sure u get a good one before u rule it out. The last time I bought one, I got to #3 before I got one that worked.
