Actually, it was the plastic end of the overflow reservoir that broke, stuck in the tube. There was enough slack that I cut that part of the tube and stuck it onto a new overflow reservoir purchased from the local auto part supplier

I replaced the pulley to the water pump then noticed a leak of anti freeze around that area. When I searched to find the leak I noticed that a thin plastic tube was just hanging. From what I learned, that tube transfer the coolant to the radiator so I'm gonna attempt to repair or replace it so prevent the overheating.
