Default 96 fsb5.8 cooling system problem

I have issues with my cooling system. I noticed the smell of antifreeze after a 20mi trip poped the hood seen fluid on top of the overflow tank. The upper hose was hard so i figured thermostat, replaced no help. Any ideas would help

you did install the t-stat correctly with the spring toward the hose
another overheating issue would be fan not working, or the pump not working
or if you have been out hunting and rode through a field to pick up that big Deer the weed tops could be clogging the radiator fins

take the cap off the radiator and see if the tubes inside are clogged up

if this just started I'd say fan or pump

The only other thing i can think of is the impeller on the pump is worn out. Has it been replaced? Or possibly a clog in the heater core? Or just a little over full? Has this been a reoccurring problem or isolated?

A brand new t-stat can be bad right out of the box
you can check one before install by putting it in a pan of water and heating it up on the stove
use a thermometer to watch the temp and when it gets up to 190+ degrees it should be wide open

or try running the engine without the t-stat

I'll bet, if you remove the t-stat it wont over flow
