Disconnect the hose that runs from the intake manifold to the degas bottle, at the degas bottle. Start and run the engine to check for water pump flow, from the degas bottle hose. Do you get a steady stream of coolant exiting the hose with the engine running? If not, your water pump impeller is shot. If you do, your head bolts are likely stretched, causing coolant to pressurize under load (which is likely the case if your temperature gauge went into the "red zone" anyways).
