Antifreeze pushed into overflow

So my 99 Ranger is overheating. One GLARING thing I have noticed is that all the antifreeze is in the overflow bottle and none in the rad?

Please don't tell me its a head gasket? I will do a Hydro Carbon test tomorrow after I refill the rad.

Its a 3.0 with 209,000 KM on it.

Head gasket or cracked head, could be a bad rad cap.......long shot, lol

Refill with water don't waste money on coolant.
Leave rad cap off and start cold engine

If coolant starts coming out of rad cap opening...........bad news.

If you have to pay for a Block test(hydro carbon test) don't, just do the Glove test, it's free and better because you can ID which cylinder has the leak.
