Check transmission coolant lines a small blockage there can cause a hassle basic rules of cooling system, thermo, pump, leaks, blockage, just curious have you used one of those lead leak sealers

It's Hotter at the bottom because that's where it enters the radiator from the engine. The laws of thermodynamics will cause the Hot coolant to rise to the top where it will reenter the engine block. Actually the temperature seems normal. At 220F you have about 3 lbs of pressure in the system .. well below the 15lbs that would result in boiling over
