Head gasket , intake gasket. Pressurize the coolant system and perform a simple leak down test. Check with your local parts stores see if they have a loan a tool program and borrow a coolant pressure tester.. look for cold leaks.. visible signs of leaking. Also disconnect that temp sensor see if your cooling fans come on they should.. let me know..
