New update. Car overheated on the way to work today and we immediately got it to the shop, waited 15 minutes and burped it again. Apparently 10x the amount of air bubbles came out this time...

Thank you very much! So it's really as simple as:

Yeah, true. I'll look around on Monday and see what I can find. Maybe this will blow over and be a cheap job and things will be okay.

Thank you for all of the help.

The thing is, every time I've had it overheat on me it seems like it's under heavy conditions. 4 times to date. 2 on the highway going 70mph and twice when I turned on the heat in my car.

I don't know of any radiator shops or anything like that. Honestly this is really depressing. I really don't have the money to take it to a shop and pay their prices or do any of that.

I haven't seen any coolant or anything but perfectly clean oil in my car after every change since I've bought her so I'm really, really hoping it's not that. As for the coolant leak, I do see stains...

There is no coolant found on the passenger side floor, no smell in the car and no condensation on the windshield. Would this point to it being the water pump?
