If there was a head gasket problem there would be white smoke. You may have a water leak somewhere. Maybe a hose came off.

This particular model suffers with head gasket problems. I have had to replace head gaskets on several of these vehicles to solve the overheating problem. The two cylinders in the rear of the engine are the problematic ones. The head gasket goes bad in that area which sends combustion gas into the cooling system. This then creates air pockets which in turn causes the engine to run hot. The air pockets then shift and as water starts to circulate again, the temperature goes back down. This cycle repeats over and over.
Solution is to replace the head gaskets.
