What do you mean the coolant is running out the temp? As far as the overheating, it sounds like it isn't overheating based on the temp gauge. You said it remains in the middle. First, make sure the car is actually overheating. Next, with the engine cold, remove the radiator cap and start the engine. Does coolant shoot out?
