Hi everyone I recently bought a 1998 civic ex d16y8 it will not over heat on short trips (10-20miles) but the overflow tank will fill up to the point where it sprays out. On 100+ mile trips it will start to warm up, I turn the heater to full blast and it goes back down. I changed my thermostat, raidator cap no air in the system. Oil and coolant do not appear to be mixing. I know it might be a head gasket but I have no other symptoms of a head gasket leak. And I can't help but think if it was a head gasket it would be on all trips long and short. So what else could it be need help thanks everyone

Ahh the infamous overheating fun..... could be anything from the little tube inside the overflow is missing, failing water pump, improperly filled radiator, thermostat not opening, all of which I have experienced.............
