I repaced the thermostat and refilled the radiator. All seemed fine for about 5 minutes idling in the driveway. It reached normal temp and seemed to hold, so I took it for a drive. All still seemed normal, even on the freeway. After about 5 miles, I decided I needed to push the engine, just to be confident it was fixed and sure enough, it started overheating again. I pulled off and got back home and see coolant everywhere. Still can't tell where its coming from exactly, still looks like spillover from the cap. I'm thinking its probably the water pump, just want to be sure before I order a new one.
