    Maybe a cracked block, cracked head, or a blown head gasket. A compression test may help figure it out.

    Let me get this straight:

    1. You're overheating
    2. You're getting coolant into the exhaust chambers
    3. Your system is getting overpressured and is venting into the overflow tank

    Sounds a lot like a bad head gasket or cracked head to me, brother. Sorry for the bad news......
