Engine Cooling problem
1992 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 200000 miles
My '92 Explorer overheated 25miles from home, as I was driving it began making a gurggling sound, and lost power. I pulled off roadway, and let cool off. Replaced water in radiator, then drove another 21 miles before it again overheated, again I pulled off highway and allowed it to cool off, replaced lost water, and drove the remaining distance home.
I am pretty sure it is the water pump, however a mechanic I know said he feels it blew the head gasket, he replace my heater core a couple months ago, and when he tested cooling system, told me there was Hydrocarbons in the engine.
