Overflow boiling over?

Any ideas on this? WP should be good, I have good heat, and comes fast to. I just did my gasket and I used the old thermostat, it was fine. But maybe not.
Thanks

Probably something to do with the radiator. Maybe clogged? Clogged hoses or something. If the coolant is boiling, it's obviously getting too hot. Is your fan kicking on when it needs to? There a ton of reasons it could be cooing improperly.

Try flushing the system, and see if you get some nasty crap in your old coolant.

So new rad cap, new thermostat, new rad drain plug, and flush, new fluid. It seems to be holding. Time will see.

Hopefully it was just nasty fluid/ cheap thermostat. I always get excited when the cheapest / easiest fixes are the correct one.
