Drove to work today and when I got there there was antifreeze puking out of the overflow. Pulled the cap off of the overflow and then it really came out. I suppose I have an airlock in there. Is it what I hope it isn't? I'm just getting ready to move to another province and I really don't want to have to deal with a headgasket repair.

Does sound like head gaskets. Not a good idea to still drive it with the problem, as you can damage the heads-- and possible the engine block.

hasn't done anything since, temperature remains the same as before. We'll see what happens over the next little while before jumping on any huge repairs.

Did you just add coolant to it? Maybe it was overfilled a little and just pushed out what it didn't want, or...

Check your upper radiator hose to see if it is hard after sitting overnight. Check for coolant in the oil as well. As stated above be careful you don't hydro lock the engine if the gasket is really bad.
