If the engine is just cutting off, I tend to agree with you. It may well be electrical. When you pulled your radiator cap off, and your thermostat opened up, did you witness a lot of water movement through the opening? If little, I would say the pump is gone. This may well be a combination problem, where the actual problem is affecting the ECU to cut off everything to protect the engine.

|gunnar92yj||im not losing any coolant. no coolant in my oil. ill check my plugs. i know there is a sensor on the thermostat housing that goes to the ECU. i was thinking that the ecu cuts my ignition when the temperature gets too extreme. and would the blown head gasket impede water flow? the motor dies with absolutley no hesitation what so ever, just like you turned the key off. thats why i was leaning towrd a computer driven shut down due to high temp.????|

Have you checked your spark plugs yet? Want to see if you have any coolant smell. Have you run a vacuum test yet? It would let you know if you blew a head gasket. A blown water pump or clogged engine block wouldn't make the engine quit. This has to do with the combustion chamber.

water pump.... But then again head gasket. Change the pump and hope for the best.
Highly doubt you could clog the engine up to point no water flowed. When you pull pump you will see why.
