4.6 motor. It acts like the coolant isnt circulating. I put 3 thermostats in it and I have the same problem. Doesn't smoke no oil in the coolant or vise versa like a blown head gasket I can smell exhaust fumes in the over flow when I remove the radiator cap. Could this b a blown intake gasket. Or what is going on.

Do you
have the same problem?

With the engine cold, remove the radiator cap and start the engine. Does the coolant shoot out of the radiator?
