HAVE YOUR COOLANT TESTED FOR COMBUSTION GASES/ MATERIAL

YOU MAY HAVE A HEAD GASKET ISSUE GOING ON.

Thank you I'll have it tested tomorrow, I just read that it could be because the cooling system might need bled this is new to me. I went out and looked and there is a pecock valve on top of my radiator so I was going to let itbuild some pressure up in the morning anb loosen it to see if it would release any air or justspit fluid at me. Do you think that could be the case cause I really cant afford to miss work dont have much time as it is but its also my olny tra sportation so if I need to sink money into it I dont want to have to do it for something I couldve prevented

NO IDEA ON THE COST OF DOING A HEAD GASKET ON THE THIS NEWER STUFF

I MAINLY DEAL WITH JEEP CJs AND OTHER CARBURETED VEHICLES (AND OF COURSE, THOSE BEAUTIFUL WILLYS JEEPS!)

SEEMS THAT SOMEWHERE IN THE TRANSITION TO THESE NEWER CYBER CARS, THEY SOMEHOW INCORPORATED IN MANY "NEW CHALLENGES" TO THROW EVERYBODY OFF GUARD. AIR TRAPPED IN COOLING SYSTEM, ANTI -THEFT STUFF THAT IMMOBILIZES THE 98% THAT WILL NEVER GET STOLEN! AND IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE RADIO OR IT GETS BROKE.,.,.,.,.TOO BAD!.,.,.,.,.,.IT'S PART OF THE CYBER MONSTER SYSTEM, ONLY A DEALER RADIO IS COMPATIBLE.

YOU MIGHT LOOK TO SEE IF YOUR LOWER HOSE IS SUCKING FLAT AND RESTRICTING FLOW

I RECKON YOU HAVE SEEN THESE?
