Thanks for using Just Answer.
First of all stop driving it!!! Have it towed to your favorite repair shop. It needs a water pump and a large cooling fan. Both fans should run together - both on low speed and then they should switch to high speed when needed. The temp gauge is not accurate either if the water pump is not flowing - there is no air in the system just no flow so the hot water / steam stays in the block and the engine will melt down if you continue to drive it. It is hotter than the gauge is indicating!
