Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If coolant is pushing out of the system without overheating it's usually due to a combustion leak.

I question the thermostat though, even if the thermostat was stuck closed there is still flow through the bypass and thermostat jiggle pin. Did the problem start after the thermostat was replaced, or was the thermostat replaced in an attempt to repair this issue?

Did the problem start after any repairs, an accident, etc?
