Engine Problems Fast response needed

Hi selling my car when suddenly it starts to overheat constantly. What it does is after i drive it for a couple of miles, it throws the contents of the water coolant tank out the bottom of the car?

Just had a new radiator and fan switch but it is still doing it, any ideas?

Thanks
James B

Check near the thermostat. The water in the engine just goes round the engine until it gets hot, then the thermostat opens and passes through the radiator, so if it does it after a while then it sounds like its after that.

They did bleed the cooling system properly, yes?

Cheers
