Question type: Maintenance & Repair

about 3 months ago when it was cold out it would take a very long time for it to heat up and whenever I would break on the car it would get cold again and the temp would go down. Now the temp goes al the way up but there is no antifreeze spuming out from the reservoir. the fan is working fine just the amount of antifreeze has doubled around the thermostat housing
