    I've solved the problem. The Prius uses a system to heat the coolant quickly when it is cold. If this system works poorly it boils in the coolant then it increases the pressure in the cooling system. The symptoms are similar to poor cylinder head.

    looks like the error is back. Replaced water pump and thermostat, egr valve and egr cooler replaced old injectors. The new water pump (Asian) behaves differently than the old one. It appears that when the engine gets hot, the coolant boils.
