Default OVERHEATING AT A LOSS

I tried everything from flushing radiator, new t-stat, new reservior, fans working, and water pump. I was told there was air trapped in the radiator i tried bleeding it out didnt work. Yesterday i was letting car idle trying to bleed air out and i saw water pouring out the bottom. I looked and looked and could not see where it was coming from. I put the radiator cap on and close the bleeder and leak stops. Turn the car off no leak. I drove it about 6 miles all was ok then it started to over heat again. It got so hot it blew the reservior cap off and was boiling in reservior. I let it cool and filled it up again and did the same thing over and over. I dont see a leak, water on the ground but idle with cap off water comes out from somewhere cant see it. I love my pt but Im to the point of selling it. 2005 pt convertible with turbo. If anyone knows plz i will listen.

Just because it's a new tstat doesn't mean its not bad. I would check it out. Maybe it's upsidedown. Not sure if that can be done I 've never seen mine.

i have also seen rad caps get cracks in the seals and cause this issue. even a aged cap can have a shrunken seal. if they don't fit perfect do to age they will allow air to be sucked in threw cap.
