Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.
I would check for air, be it as it is that you went for a week, there could have been an air pocket/bubble, from there I would inspect the water pump and impeller for damage, also check compression and preform an engine block test which uses a chemical on cooling system to check for exhaust indicating head gasket possibility.
It would help me to also know what conditions are during the problem for it to occur.
Thank you!
