ISUZU TROOPER RADIATOR PROBLEM

2000 Isuzu Trooper • 114,000 miles

My truck gets up to temp ok. Drive a mile or two and the haters in the cab go cold, another mile or so and the temp Gage goes to the cold side. I stop and the radiator is empty, expansion tank is full, and fluid traces all over the overflow. I've put a new thermostat on but no joys. What else could it be?

Hav eit pressure checked for a coolant leak it may be a head gasket

No, that's gonna be tomoro I think. There's no bubbles in the expansion tank when it's running, but there seems to be alot of pressure in the return hose from engine to radiator.
