Probably just needs to be burped, if you have a radiator cap its easy. I installed a radiator cap into my upper radiator hose for pretty cheap. Just open it up, turn the rig on and let it run. Just keep filling it till the fluid level doesn't go down anymore. Then top off the overflow bottle.
it is a closed system so i can only put fluid in the resovior....there is no cap by the uper hose....so i need more ideas....if i dont get anythign soon im going to redo the head and a bunch of other deep engine stuff...

It sounds like the root cause of your overheating may be air in the system. You need a better cap and bottle to maintain the pressure of the coolant system and you need to follow the burbing proceedure.
A new mechanical clutch for the fan would be a wise investment as well.

ok so i have replaced the water pump, upper adn lower coolant lines, radiator cap, thermosdadt, and have flushed the system.....it is a closed system and it constantly overheats....any other ideas?
I feel ya, the same was happening to me, The person at the Safety and Emissions place over heated it, and i guess it ruined the thermostat. I filled the radiator threw the hose, because i also dont have a cap, i filled the hose up, and put my mouth over it and blew the coolant down into the radiator, and it fixed, good luck!
