Exclamation more problemsss

i replaced all the coolant hoses, thermostat and switched caps for the tank, BUT its still creating tons of pressure and is blowing coolant out from the cap and it also looks like its coming from someplace on the front or side of the block on the drivers side (us) and its not a hose, what could it be? it seems to be something that is attached to the block itself but i cant see.

have you checked the coolant bypass valve, those are very prone to failure on these 9-5s....

no but this is in a different location, it looks like its spraying onto the waterline for the waterpump right where the rubber and metal hose is connecting at and its then running down the block and tranny right there

Sounds like the coolant it not making it's way to the radiator. That's the only reason I see it would be getting that hot. Maybe a plugged radiator, or not enough flow?

also i forgot to add, if i give it gas (with the cap off, close to overflowing) it will go down, but then come back up. so idk, flush the radiator out i guess?
