The problem is most likely 90% head gaskets but could be intake manifold gasket leaking too. Intake gasket has to be checked when intake is removed. Might find problem there if not continue and remove heads. Bars Leak will not work.

sounds like you have a blown head gasket.
be sure engine is cold, open water tank be sure it is full than start car with tank open see if you see bubbles in the tank. If so possible head gasket blown.

I had the same problem, whole new radiator, new hoses, new thermostat, and still overheating. What the problem was for me...bad radiator cap...all that money and a $20 fix...try it?

Replace the bad radiator hose first. Second- get you special formulated anti-freeze dye from the auto store and pour it into the radiator. Third- make sure you got all the air pockets out of your system, cause the coolant system won't work with air pockets in it. Fourth- Check for leaks by looking for the colored dye. If it's not the radiator hose, then could possibly be a pin hole in your radiator. Would suggest replacing all the radiator hoses at the same time while you got the coolant system disconnected, cause you don't want to have to come back and replace another hose in a few months.

I dont think the coolant is boiling, I think you have an air bubble in your system wich is causing a air lock and youll need it flushed out. Your reservior cap should be tight always.. never loose this is an air tight system and your allowing it to get air in it. I have a 2002 linc ls and just had to pay 1000.00 to replace the system because I let an air lock go for too long and had so much back pressure I blew up my reservior.
