It sounds as though the coolant is flowing completely through the entire cooling system. Check to make sure the bottom or return hose from the radiator to the engine isn't sucking closed when the engine is running, either idling and/or revved up.

No, sucked close.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I guess have to remove the clamp and disconnect the hose to make sure that they're flow or something.
Expert:  Mike S. replied 1 year ago.

No, just look at the hose and see if it is sucked closed while the engine is running, idling and have someone else rev the engine up and see if the hose sucks closed.

the are both firm and like really hard they're not soft and there's a overflow hose on the reservoir and the antifreeze is coming out from there

You may have a partially clogged radiator. You should have it flow tested, rodded out or replaced.
