I would pull the radiator cap off (when cold) and see what it looks like if it is all gummed up get a new one asap and have the system flushed and the lines that are leaking replaced since they are probable getting old.

What kind of temps would the car run at before the t-stat was replaced? I assume 120-130F. What temps is it showing now that the t-stat was replaced?
I move at the speed of awesome.
