If you keep replacing it this much, are you installing it upside-down? Is it the correct one for your application?

Sounds like you have an air pocket trapped in the cooling system. Make sure you have the proper t-stat then bleed the system of air properly.

t-stat

In my experience trapped air causes over-heating,not over-cooling. Summit,and/or Jeg's both carry the proper thermostat if your local auto-parts store can't figure it out.
