good afternoon my name is ***** ***** I will assist

the first thing I would do is a leak down test. this test injects shop air into the cylinder and will check if there is a leak into the cooling system. if there is, then coolant will flow out of the radiator. if it does, that confirms the head gasket or the head.

I would not get the water pump done until this test is done first.
