Sounds like there's a good chance your head gasket could be ready to go...time to call the mechanic!

Could be a bad water pump, I have seen the vanes corroded to the point where they don't move any fluid in the cooling system and they never leak. But make sure you have all of the air out of the cooling system.


You can also try doing a cooling system flush.
