Question about Cars & Trucks
If your having to put that much water in it I would lean towards a bad head gasket your other symptoms would make me think possible water pump. I'd check them both 1 of the 2 is most likely the prob or possiobly both. Good luck.

Not too sure I ended up taking to the shop. They are going to change the thermostat for the second time and if that doesn't work they are thinking blown head gaskets.

Ok first check the water pump and if that is ok sounds like the head gasket blown, look for water in the oi, thisl will be like a milky colour

Do the radiator fans come on? Turn on the A/C which should start the fans automatically. Does that stop the overheating? Replace the temperature sensor if engine heat doesn't turn on the fans (A/C off). The water pump can be checked by removing the thermostat and lowering the water level in the radiator until the tubes are exposed at the top. With the engine cold, start it and watch for water being pumped into the radiator (it should be a fair quantity), which points to an effective water pump. Shut off the engine, replace the thermostat, and refill with coolant.
