Hi, My name is ***** ***** for the delay.
I will do my best to assist you
has the engine ever been really hot?
ok,,here is what to try[it may just have an air pocket in the cooling system..
1-remove the radiator/reservoir cap when the engine is cold
2-start the engine and let idle
3-turn the heater on max
4-keep coolant on hand and add it as needed
5-spme coolant may gush out with the air
6-keep doing this until the engine is at operating tempeture and the heater is hot
7-after the coolant settles down and the engine is warm,,install the cap
This may take as long as 20-30 minutes
if it still gets hot after doing this,,,i will think that you do have a blown head gasket

i wouldnt think it is the water pump,,the impeller would need to be broken[possible but not likely]
