Engine Cooling problem 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 116000 miles
I have a car with 116,000 miles on it. I have been having overheating issues with my car for the past 6 months and no one seems to be able to figure out why. I've had my thermostat changed 2x's, still overheating. My radiator has been replaced. Still overheating. All my hoses have been checked for leaks. The check out fine. I have had the water pump checked by 2 different mechanics and they both say that it is working fine. When my car overheats it blows out antifreeze from the hose that connects the overflow to the radiator. I was told that if if run my heater it will pull the heat off and keep it from running hot, but when I run my heat while driving it causes it to shoot straight up to the H. Also when my car is sitting at a red light, in a parking lot, or anywhere where the engine is on but not moving the heat will blow cold. I don't know if it's related but the issues both seem to have started at the same time.
I know the top hose is hot. Iv'e never checked the bottom hose. The cooling fans have been checked and they to work
Please help me!
