1) I'd stop driving it until you figure it out to avoid causing more damage.
2) Removing the thermostat isn't a fix. You just removed the car's ability to TELL you it's overheating & regulate coolant flow.
3) What engine is this?
4) My guess would be headgasket here, but I could be wrong.

Does it smoke on start up? If so, likely valve seals.
If not, likely rings.

Do a compression and leakdown test and bring back data. Bitches love data.

What're you going to do when the RB blows up? Because it will.

for now get some of the cheap headgasket repair in a can and refer to their instructions. should work fine for the next few days or more but definitely not a temporary fix.
