    Any more info? Does your overflow tank bubble when the car is on? Do you see any smoke coming from the rear, perhaps white in colour?

    no smoke and no bubbles in the resovour tank. but every night after i drive home from work, i can hear noises in the tank with the high pressure cap. it sounds like its boiling or something.

    You might have got some air in the system when you did the turbo thing or other work and need to "burp it".

    Remove the filler at the radiator,

    Start the car and idle

    Turn on the heater on high and let the car warm up completly (5-10mins. minimum)

    Then add coolant slowly.

    You should be able to see it circulating through the radiator filler hole when the thermostat gets warm and is open, (It might be hard to see it moving around in there, Just look with a flashlight)

    Keep adding coolant (50/50mix) into the radiator fill hole until it wont go take anymore.

    Put the radiator cap back on

    Then top of the overflow reserve.

    That should fix it if you dont have a leak.
