1996 ford escort, 1.9 ci, 200,000 km, new rad cap and thermostat, . When I filled the rad with coolant and started the engine it blew the coolant out off the Rad. I than filled the rad again with the engine off, top rad, hose hot. The in heater hose Hot. The out heater hose cold. I drove the car for 5 miles and let idle for 10 minutes. Dash gauge shows normal, still cold air out off the heater. Could it be a head gasket? Or water pump? Or plugged radiator/heater core?
