If it's not over heating or at least leaking coolant in any way in 10 min of driving, then the water pump is most likely not the problem. It can't hurt to overfill coolant... the rest of the overfill will just leak out to the ground from an overflow tube.

When you say gallons... I hope you mean quarts. :)

No car to my knowledge takes 6 gallons.. that sounds like a train engine or something lol. Generally it's measured in quarts.. like smaller engines 6, and bigger engines are around 9.

I have an eagle talon which is an identical car to the laser... I think it's about 6-7 quarts if I remember right.

The sqeaky belt is most likely just a loose belt. I believe that getting any oil on the belt may cause squeaking for a short time.

Overheating with normal temp on gauge

The heater core would not cause you needing a quart or two of coolant to fill it up. And the water pump would not affect this either.
Something is blocking the system, it could be something in the radiator or something in one of the hoses.
You might try taking the top hose off and filling the engine with the radiator blocked off. Or fill the radiator with the engine blocked.

How do you put in a radiator for a 1993 eagle talon? can i do it myself?

here you go, start with draining the radiator fluid there is a valve on the front drivers side at the bottom of the radiator. undo both radiator hose from the engine. next disconnect the radiator fans. there is 2 radiator suports on the front support bar they should be a 10mm socket.when just lift it right out. p.s. if its an automatic there is 2 cooling hoses for the transmission.
