05 duramax diesel coolant presure problem,no heat and blowing out of bottle

You have a head gasket blown. Pushing combustion gasses into coolant and displacing coolant for no heat.

You can remove belts so coolant pump don't circulate. Remove necessary hoses or fixtures to see coolant at each head. Temporarily run engine and look for bubbles to see which bank or side is blowing coolant. Don't run too long or it will overheat.

My 04' Chevy 5500 truck with 6.6 ltr. duramax lost power twice while climbing the highway in the Yukon territory. Pulled off the side of the road at idle, throttle would not take engine past 2000

Did the check engine light come on ?
Could have been a restriction in the fuel line or a problem with the throttle position sensor among other things.

Need to replace thermostat but am unsure about how antifreeze goes back in after being drained and how the the engine refills the raditor

You refill the engine coolant by filling the overflow reservoir/pressure tank.Start the vehicle and keep filling until it reaches the full mark,then allow the engine to get to operating temp of 190 degrees and then top off the coolant.There is no bleeders for this engine unless you have a duramax then there is a bleeder on top of thermosatat housing that you remove with the engine off and fill the coolant until it comes out of the bleed hole.Start the duramax engine and let warm to operating temp.You may need to hold the engine speed at 2000 rpm to get the diesel to operating temp.

Got 04 chevy duramax wont go in four wheel drive it is push button

These push button motors have a tendency to freeze up when they aren't used a lot. When you push the button can you hear it trying to engage, or does it just blink and then go back to 2 hi? My first guess would be a faulty motor.
