SOURCE: isuzu car engine overheating
I had the same problem on a Vauxhall Montery (Same Car), The thermostat jams shut thus causing the engine to overheat and damages both the cylinder head and gasket, first thing to check is the enigne oil, pull out the dipstick and check for a white, spongy liquid. If present then your head gasket is passing water into the crankcase, If engine oil OK then fill up the coolant system and give the car a good old rev for a few minutes then check teh exhaust for water. In both cases the cylinder had needs to be removed, skimmed, gasket replaced and thermostat replaced.

You may need to ask AAA to put a radiator pressure tester on the resevoir bottle and pump it up to operating pressure(Pressure cap rating) and see if it over pressurises while it is running at operating temp,rev engine up and down and watch what the testers pressure readings do,it should move up and down in sync with the water pump.If the pressure keeps building i would have to believe that combustion chamber gases are over pressurising your cooling system.Also test the pressure cap is functioning within factory specs.

Ensure that there is no leak, checking all the coolant lines and the radiator.
If there is no leak and the car is consuming coolant liquid, then you may have a faulty head gasket.
What happens is that the head gasket allows coolant leaking and being vapourised inside the engine.
To find out if your head gasket is starting to go you can perform a compression test.
