Has the cooling system ben purged from the air pockets when refilling with coolant? And do the fans turn on?

Do run a change the water pump change the thermostat he time I put water in it I can only run for about 15 minutes and it gets real hot


9VZZM, make sure the cooling system was purged from air. To check for a bad head gasket, do a cylinder compression test. You would find 1 or 2 cylinders low on compression next to each other. Here is a video on how to purge the cooling system...
