Thermostat stuck will it cause antifreeze to come out the overflow hose of the heater core?

The heater core has no overflow hose. Cooling system is a closed loop system and the only overflow hose is the one going from the radiator cap to the reservoir. A thermostat that is stuck closed will cause the engine to overheat. Drain and flush the radiator, replace the thermostat, install a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and distilled water, bleed air from the system. You may also need to replace the radiator cap. Be sure and replace these parts with OEM parts.The heater core has no overflow hose.

How do you fix a radiator leak on a 1994 Mazda Protege 4-cylinder automatic?

If this radiator has a plastic top, I would suggest you purchase a new radiator. If it is metal, then remove the radiator and have it repaired and flushed, at a radiator shop. This is a good time to service your cooling system. Replace the thermostat and flush the engine out. Check all radiator hoses including the heater hoses, and replace if necessary. Reinstall a 50/50 mix of the appropriate coolant. Don't forget to bleed the air out of the system after reinstalling everything.

Where do you pour radiator sealant in a 1997 Saturn sw1?

You don't. The only place you pour coolant into this car is into the reservoir, and the piping to the radiator will be sealed by radiator sealant as it's a pretty small diameter tubing - much of the coolant system on this car is pretty small as the engine is small. Smaller cars are a lot less tolerant of these types of fixes, you'll be lucky if you don't mess up your water pump, radiator, hoses, etc. If it were me, I'd replace the radiator and skip a possibly far more expensive repair.
