Two days ago, I was driving, my antifreeze came out the overflow valve, because my car almost overheated, the temp went to normal to hot in 30 seconds and i pulled over and turned it off. I got my thermostat changed and fluid changed. It runs ok, but my temp is going all the way to the L in normal, and before it stayed under the C the whole time, until i pushed it over 3k. I get no heat in my car, nothing is leaking, and the heads and everthing look ok. Please Help.

do a compression test, could be a head gasket and the exhaust is pushing into your coolant lines.

Here are some possibilities. Thermostat is bad, your radiator was not completely full (you have a small leak somewhere) your head gasket is toast (you have a 95 and if it has not been changed well now its time) or your radiator is clogged or deteriorated.

The fact is our cars have a closed coolant system and will overheat if the system is not completely full or has air in it.

The top hose gets warm, however the bottom one stays cooled, alot of air came out the lines today, but i am bringing it back to a mechanic, to take a look.

I don t think its the gasket because my oil is fine and the exhaust isnt smoking.

Thermostat was replaced
No sign of Headgasket Failure
I think the Radiator is clogged, because the top hose to the radiator from the engine is hot, the bottom stays cooled. I am having it checked out.
