Both coolant hoses were hot, limp and the coolant in the reservoir would bubble when the car was turned off

Symptoms and overheating update: I replaced the thermostat but the coolant hoses and both coolant hoses were hot, limp and the coolant in the reservoir would bubble when the car was turned off…. but the car would not overheat.. Even after letting the car idle for 20-30 minutes and also driving for 30-45 minutes. Basically the car seemed fine except the bubbling coolant.

The hoses being limp point to a pressure problem in the coolant system. So I added a new radiator cap…. This caused huge problems. The car over heating and ran hot after 10 minutes or so. I never checked my coolant level in the reserve tank! 🙂 It was actually low because the fluid was not being circulate in the coolant system. So I had to add more antifreeze.

Problem solved…. So far at least. 🙂
