Could be a bad water pump. The impeller on the water pump erodes away causing poor circulation. You would have to pull the water pump to check, but this is a common problem. Also the cooling needs to be purged from the air pockets whenever opening up, draining coolant from the system. Another cause you have not mentioned would be a plugged up radiator.

Sorry for a wait on your answer, it is summer time now and people get busy, and back to work. The people on here answer questions in their own spare time.
