any heat at all.if u put antifreeze in it comes right

Sounds more like a blown head gasket or cracked cylinder head. Compression gasses are getting forced into the cooling system blowing the coolant right back out. HTH

The plastic elbows in the heater hose have probably blown. It's a cheap fix. Hopefully you haven't overheated the engine too much.
