Q: Truck over heat

asked by on

When first drive of the day the car will over heat to 260' but will cool down as soon as I put it in park. Replaced the thermostat and ran fine but after replacing that it started to over heat again. Heater isn't blowing out hot air, When I shut the truck off sounds like bubbling in resivor. It's pushing fluid back up in my resivor and pushing it out of my over flow. What could be the problem?

My car has 124000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
