Default 2.2 overheating help !

I bought a 1990 legacy and I'm pissed cuz it overheats Luke it's no ones buisness. I bought a new thermostat and it didn't cure it. Maybe it needs a water pump?? My dad said maybe a head gasket but ugh.. Anyone else gave this issue and can relate and help me out ??! I need to get it running!

Two things maybe the system has air so it needs to be bled off. Or the radiator is garbage. Alot people put radiator seal in and don't realize that it blocks the banks some time. More than one at a time. Change your radiator and fluid. Always change all fluids when you buy a vehicle.

to test the radiator you can drive around and get it hot. then stop and feel the middle of the radiator with your hand. also the upper and lower hoses. all should be hot. if there is a temp difference its probably plugged.
