Frankie, it's probably a blown head gasket.  To get air pockets out, park it nose up somewhere and let the cap off.  To check for a blown head gasket, also check the recovery tank better yet, pull and inspect the plugs and do a compression test.

It over heated cuz  The radiator was frozen when we had cold front  The radiator was a block of ice  I didn't know until I was down the road

Well, it could've cracked your block, heads, who knows what.  Compression test the motor and pressure test the radiator.
