Sounds like a blown head gasket. That will push the water out of the engine, and get you exhaust instead.

Most common reason for overheating is 1. low coolent lvl 2. faulty thermostat (stuck closed). 3. Faulty water pump preventing coolent from circulating through engine.

Check coolent lvl in radiator when engine is cool by removing the cap and filling it up till you can see the coolent, replace cap and try. If you have the proper lvl of coolent. Replace your thermostat, which is located under the thermostat housing (right underneith where your top radiator hose connects). Fill with coolent and see if that helps. Next test is to start the car and let it run till it gets to normal operating temp or near (180 to 220 degrees F) Pinch your upper radiator hose and see if you can feel a gush, or flow of water rush through the hose when you release your pinch hold on the hose, (by pinch, I mean to try and totally squeeze the hose together) If you don't feel the rush of coolent through the hose, then your waterpump is faulty. If your car quits overheating, but your heater hoses don't get hot, then they are probably stopped up at the point where they connect to the engine. Its a common area for gunk, rust, and corrosion to build up.

I put a new thermostat in my 07 still running hot

water pump faulty, low on coolent, could be temp sensor faulty too if it reads hot all the time, even when you know its cold (like first thing in the morning) loose belt on waterpump, clogged coolent system, maybe it needs flushed.

What type of coolent does a 2001 saturn SL1 need? I think I accidently put the wrong color coolent in. It has been two months and I am now taking it to get it flushed. Could I have caused any damage...

Putting the wrong color coolant in will not hurt anything, but, the coolant might turn brown if you mixed green and red/orange, flush the system and put green coolant in, it's fine for your car, and yes it sounds like the water pump might be leaking, replace the thermostat at the same time.

I have a 1998 mazda manual, Water has come out then the car overheat. We put new howes and coolent and this morning all the coolent and water comes out, Can it be athe water pump and if so could I put that...

No the water pump is not automatic with the timing belt, but it should have been recommended. If the coolant is coming out the passenger side of the engine it is most likely the pump. If it blowing out the radiator or coolant resevoir it is a blown head gasket.
I always recommend that the water pump be replaced with the timing components or the timing components with the water pump. you only want to do it once for labor costs. I am under no obligation to do that, it's just good practice to keep customers happy. And I like to give customers the heads up on what could happen if I only replaced a part that needed replaced and saw a part that was worn in the same area, to replace it while it was open and save them the labor cost of going in after it later. It's just good practice. The other mechanic is under no obligation to replace your pump. Find a reputable mechanic that knows what he is doing.

Water pump replacement

You required to remove the front cover of the engines. You will be finding the timing belts and drive belts which is connecting the crank shaft at the bottom to A/C compressor, power steering pump coolent pump and a belt tensioner.

You have to loosen the belt tensioner and remove the belt. then you have to remove the pump. Before removing the coolent pump, you need to drain coolent, so that you can refill the same again.

Waterpump leaks

Maybe. You could put an additive in, at the radiator cap, but there is no saying it will stop the leak. Are you sure it's the gasket and not the water pump itself. It has abuilt in leak to let you know it's wearing out. Check under the water pump and see if your coolant is coming out of the small hole on the bottom of the pump. If it is change the pump.

Coolent is leaking from overflow and overheating

I will agree with your uncle and say that you should check the water pump. Start the vehicle and look at the water pump. Most water pumps have a "weep hole". If there is coolant coming out of this hole the water pump is not working properly. If not, and if the temperature has been running normally, you may have fixed the problem when you replaced the cap, if the water pump is good and the temp has been running high, then check the thermostat. Hope this helps and good luck.
