Bubbling has been happening for about a week, finally overheated. Started to replace thermostat but one of the bolt holes is stripped. Going to buy a tap and die set and try that out for the first time (kinda nervous) Hoping it ends up being the thermostat but would like some thoughts on it please! Also engine ticks consistently. Thanks!

Anything else unusual?

When my husband took off the thermostat, it was stuck open. Thought that was weird. Any thoughts?
