When you start your engine and it runs up to operating temperature most of the air in the system is let out of the rad cap. When the engine cools down some air is drawn back into the cooling system. The amount of involved is accomodated by the volume of the cooling system in total. The full mark is used on a cold engine to minimise this air activity to a ...

If you're lucky like I was, it simply means there's a leak in one of your pipes or the coolant bottle is cracked. This would allow air to escape, meaning you lose pressure, which in turn allows the coolant to boil. Look for a tiny leak in the pipes or bottle somewhere. When the engine is hot and the coolant is boiling, open your hood and have a look around. ...

Bubbling probably means that air pressure is building in the coolant. This is often caused by a blown head gasket, where coolant leaks into one or more cylinders in the engine, and is simply burned off, so you don't see any leaks or coolant on the ground, as it's leaking internally. Compression from the cylinder forces air back through the head gasket into ...

Embedded in your cooling system radiator is a transmission oil cooler, it comes as part of the radiator. From your description, "... oil flooding out..." it would appear that your oil cooler has burst/split, and is pumping transmission oil out onto the floor. If this is so it will mean a replacement radiator/oil cooler assembly.
