Judging from all the symtoms I figure it was the water pump, but since the tstat is right there I replaced it too. I figured better spend $100 now and hopefully avoid dealing with it again for a while.

If you want to do it in steps from least $ to most $, you can, but it's quiet a bit of work. Took me 8hrs to replace both (would be same time for either, since both tstat and pump have to come out for you to replace either).
