For some reason whenever I fill my overflow tank for the radiator coolant rushes out the overflow pipe onto the ground after a 30+minute drive. Eventualy the overflow tank empties out.

No over heating problems or any issues with the car.

I'm thinking possibly a radiator cap problem. No coolant in the oil or the other way around.

Any info would be helpful...thanx

I would agree.

What's probably happening is that the cap is opening way too early and sending the contents of the radiator into the overflow tank. Check the condition of the cap and the pressure rating. It should be about 13psi, which is what I have on my 2nd gen. You *could* also try 16psi *if* the radiator is in good condition.
