Baffling, are you sure you have the thermostat installed in the right direction?

Re: boiling coolant in the resevoir

if u have the thermostat installed correctly, trying going with a cooler thermostat, if that doesnt work, theres a little whole on your neck of the water pump, take a look at that, if thres signs of water coming out, or looks like at one time its coming out, then the water pump is bad
