Okay let’s start from the beginning. 

1) have you checked that the bottom radiator hose is warm, or is that cold when the top one is hot? If yes, thermostat. Temporary fix is to just remove it. They’re a couple of quid from most places. Also check there’s no damage to thermostats housing. 

2)Steam is the result of the boiling water

3) as soon as the temperature reaches 100, for the love of all things gaskety, do not leave it running, especially to the point where it gets to 110
