Air in the cooling system? Thermostat stuck? Water pump bad? Radiator fan not running? Could be many things.

New waterpump. Radiator fan is working. Not sure how to find out if the thermostat is stuck or air in cooling system. The mechanics I have gone to all admit these cars are complex and hard to work on and they arent sure
