Acura Legend is overheating?

The most common cause of overheating is a thermostat stuck in the closed position. However, other causes are: faulty water pump, clogged radiator, clogged hose(s), coolant leak or a broken drive belt. I had a 1987 legend with around 160K that was overheating. Antifreeze would boil out of the overflow. I changed my radiator and it fixed the problem.

You didn't say anything about changing the thermostat....and when you changed the head gasket did you have the head checked for cracks....But first, be sure that the fan comes on and maybe back-flush the radiator. AND when you fill it with coolant be sure to get all the air out.

Check the grille on the front of the radiator and be sure that it is clean of all mud and debris otherwise the radiator is not able to pull air through to cool the water. You can clean that grille by removing the radiator from the truck and lightly pressure washing it.

Your golf 4 is overheating and you changed the thermostat could the water pump need replaced?

It is very common for the impeller of a VW to break apart. The result is engine overheating and no heat. Usually, the the radiator remains full unless severe overheating causes a boilover and consequent loss of coolant. Also expect that the engine becomes hot yet radiator and heater hoses remain cool. If this happens, replace the water pump. It is usually convenient to replace the timing belt at this time.
