Car over heats and has a terrible idle

  • 1987 NISSAN 300ZX
  • 200,000 MILES

My 1987 300zx slowly over heats but doesnt have any leaks. That I know of. The coolant tank bubbles to the point where it leaks out and u can hear it bubbling. I replaced the water pump and I installed a thermostate but the thermostate made it over heat quicker. The hose from the radiator to the engine looks to be a lil swollen. Now about the bad idle problem. I replaced the spark plugs, wires and distributor cap and yet it still has a bad idle. It hesitates when I hit the gas and chugs. If I leave it to idle long enough it dies out. The whole response from when I hit the gas is very terrible. I was thinking it may be a vacuum leak since the air intake is pretty long and has alot of sections to it. Thank you

Do you
have the same problem?
