Get a pressure test to find the elak. There are way too many places for leaking and for us to guess. Hope you did not blow a head gasket from the overheating

Well, im not sure if its the head gasket because there isnt water or antifreeze in my oil.

Could it be the heater core, the heater doesnt work in the car.

Is there coolant on the floor in the car?

Ive put another jug of water into the system and its not leaking out but it's not staying cool. The thermostat I bought isn't opening up when its supposed to either, im thnking of just buying another thermostat and seeing where to go from there
