If you have water in our cooling system that would be one of your problems (replace with antifreeze). Water pump would last much longer than 2500 miles. If your thermostat housing has a bleeder on it, then the system has air in it and we need to let the air out (beware of HOT water). Another trick in did in the past (this might cause engine to take longer to warm up) is to drill a tiny hole on the thermostat. Please click on "Mark helpful" if you're happy with the respond. Good luck :-)
