ide start with the cheapest first and replace the expansion tank cap if that fails and as you say all the pipes are hot then ide be getting a sniff test done at a local garage is the coolant going into the expansion tank with the car idling the temp should get to around 90 92 then you should see flow into the tank if its flowing and all the pipes including bottom rad pipe are hot then its likely to be the water pump
