Coolant coming out of the overflow tank

Changed the thermostat and radiator hoses, stopped for a little now it's back. Only comes out on WOT someone suggested changing the overflow tank. Any advice ?

Well just don't drive at WOT and this won't be a problem!


If you over-fill the coolant tank, it will "burp" the coolant out until it is down to the correct level.
Does it keep losing coolant until the tank is empty? Or are you adding coolant every time that it burps it out?

It comes out till there's nothing left in the overflow, if i have the car out i check on it and always carry coolant just incase to refill

Hmmm.
In that case, I would try a new cap, or have yours tested, and try that.
A leaking head gasket can also cause this sort of problem.

Hopefully it's just a bad radiator cap.

I just dropped the motor in October, hope it's not the head gasket. I'm gonna try the cap and if that isn't it i guess overflow tank, then go from there.

I am pretty sure its your head gasket or maybe a water jacket crack. The coolant coming out like that makes me think that combustion is forcing the coolant out. You should get a compression test done.
