Best Answer

It could be as simple as the radiator cap or as serious as a leaky head gasket or intake manifold gasket (GM V-6). Other possibilities: bad temperature sensor or electric fan, bugs and dirt on outside of radiator, plugged radiator, wrong coolant mix (use 50/50 water/anifreeze), plugged catalytic converter (would also affect performance). If you suspect thermostat, replace it, do not just remove it. You've already mentioned water pump and radiator.
