Were all the remaining gasket material removed from the block? Sometimes a new water pump needs to "bed in" and will leak on initial start up but this was 20 years ago! Pressure test the cooling system to check for leaks if there are no other leaks then check other things like an inefficient radiator or a partially blown head gasket.

changed thermostat and fluid fan seems to be turning slow. there is no relay
My truck cools fine while driving but if I sit in traffic it overheats. Does this sound like a fan problem? When I check my fan it seems to be running slow.
