One clue, it could be a bad head gasket is, puffs of smoke from radiator.
Take off radiator cap, start car, step on accelerator a few times.
Does the water bubble up on acceleration and/or puffs of white smoke?

Next do a combustion leak detector blue liquid test for $21.24 part number LIS75500.

The blue liquid turns yellow if it has a bad head gasket.
