I replaced eveything to do with the cooling system ie:radiator, thermostat, radiator cap, heater core, and got a flush and fill. My temp gauge is raising and lowering and my heater is blowing cold. My antifreeze is also boiling into the reservoir tank. Anything else I should look at?

Wouldnt you notice oil in the antifreeze or antifreeze in the oil? Wouldnt it have a miss to it when at idle or loose compression?
