It sounds more like a timing problem, if it only does it above a certain velocity. get your cars timing checked

The thermostat problem caused overheat, because overheat your head gasket maybe broke up and leak,
1. check the tail pipe see if there is steam blow out.
2. check the oil cap,see if there is steam white bubbles
If you got, that probably your gasket broken.
3. put a piece of cardboard in the front of the engine, open the radiator cap. fillup water.
4.start the engine and let's run at least 30 minutes, see whether it overheat or not.
5. check the radiator water, see if it is circling. if it is not circling, probably the water pump doesn't work.
6. you will find out whether leak or not.
The cheapest way to stop engine gasket leaking, if it is not too big, go to parts store get a bottle of good stop leak and try it. sometimes you can stop the leak area. good luck. Frank

Hello Ranger Joe, eight months and two radiators is very uncommon. Question, Have you visually confirmed the leak in the radiators or is the leak near the hose connections? Replacing the radiator, cap, water pump, & the thermostat leaves only two others, the hoses and the engine block/heads. Far fitched will be something or somebody poking holes in the radiator.

There seems to be an air pocket or no antifreeze in engine block. Try this method disconnect upper radiator hose and pour water directly into hose down into engine block until it full. when its filled reconnect hose and fill up radiator. as the vehicle warms up open bleeder valve on the thermostat housing and release air from system. open slowly and BE VERY CAREFUL WATER WILL BE HOT, bleed until you get a steady stream opening and cosing valve. However if all of this don't work. You may have a bad pump. Good Luck
