I was checking the antifreeze for winter and had to add some so I started it without the cap on and added some and it kept bubbling up out of the cap. I know it can have air bubbles in the system but it never really quit having bubbles come up. What would cause that?
An article in Mopar Action, said they crack the valve seat at 75k, and go to water at 150k. However a high percentage, do not have any trouble. Dual exhaust may help the heads to run cooler, and last longer.
I have ordered a set of head gaskets for it. I have to find out what the torque specs for that engine. I am going to replace them and also the clutch fan I think. If it doesn't work then I have a small block chevy ready to go. Lol
Do your self a favor and have the heads checked out you could have a problem like the others said but it would be good insurance to have them checked for warpage also take your time while its down and get as much checked out as you can you will be glad you did
I think I am going to give up on Ford Chevy and Dodge and start buying BMX or Schwinn. Atleast then I will knw what's broken down on it..... Me! Thanks again for the help. As for the Ford I have a broken down one of those too! Lol
Thermagasket is supposed to help with problems like this. The repair has to be done with water only, then Antifreeze can be added later. If you are working outside, you may need to wait for warmer weather.
If you try to go with this repair, you need a way, to keep liquid in the cooling system, and still let air out. NAPA # SER 24680 is a funnel kit, that may help. I am going through the same thing, with a Minivan, but all brands can be affected. The Video, showed the smoking stopped, and is said to work in 94% of cases. The repair is said to be better, than it ever was.
