If you see fluid leaking from it,or car run,s hotter than normal,loosing fluid and dont see leak,mean,s pump is not working right,and burning water off.

But I don't see water leaking but car is running hot and temp has reached at least close to 260 so is it my thermostat then that's not working properly then? I just don't know what is wrong or what to do first!

I have a 2000 dodge Durango that keeps overheating and also keeps blowing the radiator fan fuse. I started it and let it warm up with the radiator cap off.. I didnt see any coolant being pulled from coolant tanks to the engine. Could this be a bad water pump?
