If you are loosing coolant out the tail pipe,and ran hot,you have a blowed head gasket and possible head damage,could have been caused by bad water pump,or thermostat sticking.

Next step rebuild your head,s,and replace head gasket,all so put new water pump and thermostat in it,go have the compression checked on it and it will show you have this problem.
