I recently had the thermostat  radiator and

Sounds like you have a blown head gasket.

Yup, that is what is sounds like.. I had a blazer that did that, so sorry. They do make something now that you can put into the motor to fix the a blown head gasket, I don't know how it works other than I sold an a little truck and the guy used it and said it solved the problem.. Me I rather do it right and only have the problem once.
