A few miles before it completely back..back down

Resolved Question:

When I fire it up in the morning it will only go a few miles before it completely overheats. But to fix it I just have to shut the car off and literally squeeze the upper radiator hose a few times. Turn the car back on and usually the water temp will fall back down to normal. And after this happens I can drive it as long as I want without it happening again until I shut it off and it sits for a while. I changed the thermostat twice. And when it happens the upper hose is pressured but cold, radiator too.
