i dont know your mechanical abilities but start the car and let it run just long enough to get it noticeably warm on the upper radiator hose. fell both the upper hose and lower hose. if the tops a lot warmer than the bottom then id guess the water pumps not circulating the water through the engine. or you could also check the weap holes on the water pump for any signs of leaks.
