Exclamation Mechanics, come hither!

Okay, got a slight problem here guys. My 2002 blazer is seeming to overheat and lifted the hood up, and steam rolls everywhere! I dont see where it could have came out of the radiator. All hoses seem to be in good shape, but water/antifreeze is all over the engine compartment.

Any ideas as to whats going on?!

Okay, I squeezed the top right hand hose and i hear the air, I then squeezed the bottom hose and you could hear it making a noise in the water, like blowing bubbles in your soda.

started it up, and didnt see anything, let it run for bout 5 minutes and no fresh water spots on the ground..

A common problem on Chevys is on the intake where a metal coolant line connects to it.

let it get cold. then pop the cap and check the coolant. make sure its still green. if it is let it run in the driveway until it gets hot. make sure it comes up to operating temp liek 180-200 on the temp guage.

if the thermostat went and got stuck closed itll overheat. and send everything out the overflow.

Did you fill up the radiator prior to doing this?

Looking for leaks by relying on system pressure is too slow, I use a cooling system pressure tester like this one
