With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

What makes you say it is overheating? Bubbling into the overflow tank? Temp gauge at full scale? If the temperature gauge is not at full scale and you are pushing coolant to the overflow it may be something as simple as the radiator cap springs are weak and not holding pressure. Easy fix for that is replace the cap.

the overheating problem

the temp gauge is all the way on hot and pushing out the overflow and would it be a head gasket even though it run great cold or hot
