My car 99 Mazda protege, seemed like it might stall but then was fine. I drove it for 30 min and it made all sorts of gurgling/boiling noise after I shut the car off. It cooled off and then seemed fine so I drove it back home (30 more min) as soon as I pulled in the driveway all the antifreeze came gushing out. I've also noticed white smoke from the exhaust. I took it to a dealer and they can't find anything wrong. Please help with some ideas! Thanks!!!! Mary

Pay attention to leaks, properly filling the system, also the block test part of the instructions.
try by replacing thermostat and the radiator pressure cap, this may be just the fix! make sure coolant level is fine. it sounds like it has to cool down for at least 10-15 minutes before restarting. god bless!!
Check the air filter hose. My '99 Protege was idling rough and would sometimes shut off. The air filter hose was cracked half way around. I replaced it (easy just loosen two hose clamps and pull out the sensor) and the car is running fine.
