do not put water in your radiator. Use 50% mix of antifreeze and water or you will corrode your engine. Add coolant mix to cold engine. Fill the reservoir and the radiator. Warm up eninge while looking for the source of the leak. If lucky, it will be the lower radiator hose. Easy repair. If it's the engine block, big problem. Let us know what you find.

The drain is located on the passenger side of the radiator at the bottom. Turn it counterclockwise to open. It is plastic so be careful if you decide to use tools to turn.

Yes, it could be a few issues, I always believe to go the cheapest route first, so you are not just replacing parts to be replacing, Based on your description, Normally it would not be overflowing if your pump is not working, It could be a clogged hose, you would have to flush system to see if that was the case, but based on my feeling, i believe it is a stuck thermostat, If your tank is overflowing, it would have to be a main hose block, but i don't believe that is the case, i would have thermostat replaced, to confirm that, for a around 50 bucks (if you stay away from dealer) you can have the radiator flushed, which is a good idea anyway, then you will know for sure it is the thermostat, and they can put that in after they flush it, or you can put thermostat in, pick there brain, when they flush it, and they can point where it is, it is just a couple of bolts to take off, clean gasket area, replace with new gasket, after of course taking old thermostat out and replacing with new one.
I hope this helps you, (again, i think it is thermostat that is stuck) thanks Mike from fixya
