it's stalled now b/c it's wants to get hot, there's not
any heat at all.if u put antifreeze in it comes right
back out onto the ground? Could it be my heater
core or water pump or thermostat?

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.
