Not much info, Kenny- is it a question? Like what to do about it? The usual suspects, thermostat, radiator, hoses, cooling fan, etc. Maybe just a bucket of ice and a cold brew-

i think it is thermostat. it is full of anti-freeze.the heater hoses are both cold when the rest are very warm

Kenny Boofer

the heater hoses are always cold. it is full of anti-freeze. i am thinking thermostat


Have you changed anything like the waterpump. a hose or something?

Kenny Boofer

no it just starting over heating and lost heat in car


Yes then go with a thermostat.The reason I asked is this is the same symptoms as an air lock in the system but you haven't opened the system up so thermostat is what I would do.
