I just bought this car it is the 350 model. I drove the car for two hours and temperature gauge spike up near the red zone, pulled over to safe place and managed to get home safely after makes few stops when it start over heating. Took the car to the shop and replaced the radiator and thermostat, drove ten minutes from the shop it start over heat again. We did 'burp" the system, took a car for test drive to see if it was fixed. Drove it two hours without over heating and left it cold for twelve hours. Checked the coolant level next day very low and top it off. Problem: coolant missing without trace, there was white smoke from tail pipe when cold start. Misfire on bank 1 cylinder 2. Also, on the cold start the CEL flashing for few minutes and stay lit as the engine warm.
Mechanic suggest head gasket leaking. I do not see any symptom of head gasket leaking such as milky oil, did block tester and the result is negative.
have the same problem?
