Remove and check the water pump.
The vanes often break off inside, if that has happened you will need a new pump.

thermo switch may of failed this will also make the engine overheat because when the water in the engine gets to a certain temperature the thermo switch operates the fan and cools the water going around the engine quickly or may be the fan is not working to test this remove the plug from the fan now find a flexible piece of wire and hold the wire across the the connection plug make sure the engine is switched on remember to keep your hands back from the fan if the fan works put the plug back on to the fan and buy a new thermo switch you may have to drain the water from the engine if the fan is not working replace fan not thermo switch.
