Default Radiator boils over

My 2.3 boils over when I turn off the engine. The temp guage moves up a bit when driving and then goes down after a minute or two. I replaced the thermostat, but it still does it. Any ideas out there?

How is your coolant? Ever flushed it?

Sounds like your radiator cap is not working right. I'd replace that next and make sure the system is topped off.

Default Thanks!

Thank you for the reply. I will get the cap replaced and see were it goes from there.

Yes, I flushed it and replaced the antifreeze recently when I replaced the thermistat.
