Question about 2002 Chrysler Sebring
I vaguely recall a bleeder on the intake or close to the top? Trapped air will make it overheat again.

Probably not water pump. Engine is notourious for vapour lock.
Cooling system must be blead of air before thermostat will work. Cool bottom rad hose is a dead give away. If you are still watching this forum reply , and I will walk you through the only way I know how to make it work properly. It's actually easy if you do it my way. I have worked on lots of cars , and this engine was the hardest to bleed out. Did one Yesterday , and works perfect.

It can a the first stage of blowing head gasket.
Fill your coolant tank to the full mark when it's COLD.
Start the car, and pay close attention to the tail pipe for a small puff of white smoke.
After 15 minutes,If you do see any vapor then take the car for a 8 minutes drive.
Park the car and listen for bubbling sound from the coolant tank,
If you see bubbles coming up then you will need a head gasket change real soon.

The heat is made in the engine so if the engine is overheated and nothing else is hot, the water is not moving.
I would have suspected a thermostat also.
I would guess now that you have a dead water pump.
