A leaking head gasket. Does your car have a lot of white smoke?

It doesn't steam out tailpipe, there's no oil in the antifreeze or antifreeze in the oil. Never any under the car. It will build pressure even when you first start in the morning.and it's not saying it's overheating but it'll push all the antifreeze in the overflow

None at all.

I still suspect a leaking head gasket. Start the car cold and remove the radiator cap. If you see bubbles you have a problem!

Once the overflow fills it comes out the hose going all over the place

It there any easier fix besides having to change head gasket. Military grade sealant?

That does happen it has bubbles when cold.

Is there any easier fixes. I see a military grade sealant.
