Re: coolant coming out exhaust!

My guess is that you would be looking at some busted knuckles, several cuss words and about a case of cold ones. My guess would be a head gasket, a compression check on each cylinder should shed some light on that theory. Any oil in the radiator? Has the engine overheated lately?

Re: coolant coming out exhaust!

i agree with slowpoke.if you do not have money for a rebuild ,you can buy some commercial block sealant.i ran an old jeep 3 years on that stuff and it sealed up the head gasket and block crack just fine.cheap way out-but not the best way out,good luck ranger rick

Head gasket is an easy replacement. You can easily do it in one day, cost around $40-$45. Good Luck!
