I think you should check the fuel injection system because this indicates that the electricity is good but the fuel is not reaching the combustion chamber. May be the fuel pump is not working ,but sure it's nothing to do with the radiator .

1983 F-150 Ford 302 engine, my problem is all of my coolant blew out of the water pump housing that is mounted on the engine, does a plug go in that hole.

ALL ! waterpumps have a hole=1/8" approx dia. underneath the main shaft that holds the fanblade to wp. shaft. When shaft bearings start to go H2O will usually leak out of here due to the seals going too.
THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH VAPOR LOCK WHICH OCCURS WHEN THE CARB AND GAS LINE BECOME HOTTER THEN THE BOILING PT OF FUEL.If your water pump is not moving enough coolant through the engine block and then the radiator you can get VP Loc(but engine will probably be boiling over//DO NOT OPEN RADIATOR CAP AT THIS TIME=YOU WILL BE SCALDED,,let it cool down.
Remove and replace water pump(you might have to pull radiator no big a deal) to get access to all bolts holding w pump on. Back flush engine block and radiator:pull thermostat to make sure correct temp to open and not stuck.Replace parts=you are done!
NOTE: If you overheat on the freeway; turn on the car's heater(it has an extra radiator to cool down engine) and stop AC. Good luck-Fly

sound like you blew the head gaskets. if you fill the radiator with water and leave the cap off and then try to start. if the water pushes out of the radiator then it is for shure the head gaskets.

Blown head gasket

Check for possible water in oil, also remove radiator cap and start engine does water want to pump out of radiator, is there white smoke coming out of tail pipe, if yes to any of those blown head gasket, if not sure yet remove spark plugs crank engine over is there any coolant coming out of spark plug holes, if yes blown head gasket, and last have a block test any repair shop can do this.Good luck

!997 chrysler town and country LXi 3.8L is overheating and it blew a hole in a hose on top and after i changed the hose it blew a hole in another hose on the bottom.Is this a water pump problem??

If the hoses were in good shape and they blew you may have a clog in the system most likely the radiator. You take the van to a good radiator shop and ask them to flow check your radiator.

I have purchased a thermostat, water pump, and radiator. Then after all this a hose blew off, then eventually the radiator had holes in it. I took it back to where I bought the radiator and they replaced...

Sounds like bull sh*t to me. the only thing to look for is constant air bubbles when the engine is hot and the radiator cap is left off
(this would mean you had a leaking head gasket. If there was to much pressure the the radiator cap would leak steam before anything else blows. Are these secondhand radiators your trying? as they sound like rubbish if the hose blew it's most likely from a blocked secondhand radiator which needs to be repaired. Don't trust dodgy car wreckers. cheers
