You may need to ask AAA to put a radiator pressure tester on the resevoir bottle and pump it up to operating pressure(Pressure cap rating) and see if it over pressurises while it is running at operating temp,rev engine up and down and watch what the testers pressure readings do,it should move up and down in sync with the water pump.If the pressure keeps building i would have to believe that combustion chamber gases are over pressurising your cooling system.Also test the pressure cap is functioning within factory specs.

SOURCE: coolant pouring out surge tank
if one radiator hose gets hot and the other doesnt, the the thermostat is shot, but you said you replaced it, it is possible the thermostat has been put in backwards

SOURCE: Radiator is empty
Always fill you radiator & resevoir with a 50/50 mix of coolant / water. Your vehicle should have dexcool which is a red/orange colored coolant. You can buy a universal equivalent which is premixed and is yellow (not green). It is safe to add universal coolant but not green antifreeze. Premixed (it will say on jug) would be your safe bet. Fill the radiator, add to overflow tank to full cold line, run vehicle until fully warmed up. Let cool back down & then recheck.
Don't forget to check for leaks....it is not normal to have your coolant get that low. You likely are leaking coolant.
If this helps please rate me!
You can do it.

SOURCE: My coolant tank is empty.
No, Land Rover radiators do not have an access for checking the radiator itself. It is implied that if the reservoir is empty then the level of fluid is too low. It is best option to do a pressure test on the cooling system and see where the leak is, and repair it.
