Blown head gaskets, Busted EGR cooler, Plugged oil cooler...

Any or all of the above. Any way you look at it it's not going to be a cheap fix, sorry...

sounds like water pump to me just went through the same thing. I had repaced the water pump 3 mounths prior with a brand new ford one due to over heating and it sloved the problem the 2 weeks ago it started acting up took it to ford they replaced the oil cooler and egr cooler and still did the same thing and ended up with a $2044.00 bill for nothing cause my water pump was missing all the fins

If you pull the thermostat and have nothing to restrict flow you'll over heat as well, water won't stay in the radiator long enough to cool.

The pumps these days the impeller vanes are made of a very thin sheet metal and are poorly attached to the shaft. Running a low coolant content, mainly water they will just rust away. We have found some that they had simply detatched from the pump shaft and were just laying there. Some we suspect were nnever even there at all, no sign of solder/weld on the end of the shaft at all,no pieces found anywhere in the cooling system.
