It's not even running threw the hose it just spits it all out I guess when the car warms up and I drive it for About ten mins then my dash says low engine coolant and then when I stop there is no coolant its bubbling out and then when it's empty uou see steam come from it and the car stays hot not the temperature gauge the car

I think you may need to change the thermostat,then if it is still doing it,change your water pump.
