This sounds like you have more problems than a stuck thermostat. A thermostat that is stuck closed will cause the engine to overheat within five minutes of starting the engine. The cooling fans can cause the overheating if they are not coming on for some reason. I recommend having a cooling system diagnosis to address your overheating issue and you should not drive the vehicle until you get it fixed or engine damage will happen.
