I went through a major repair because the car overheated. I replaced the head gasket, head bolts, radiator, radiator cap, and water pump. One week later after about 300 miles, my car temperature passed the halfway point, so I had to stop the car. I found yellow pasty substance in the coolant tank and under the radiator cap (when I opened it). I had it flushed because the mechanic that fixed the car told me that there might be a stop leak in my coolant system and radiator. I have driven the car about 600 miles since the flush, and constantly sucking out the mysterious yellow liquid from my radiator. I have a little over one liter of it that I collected and it floats above the coolant. It's thick, a little slippery, but at the same time, a little sticky. My heater doesn't work I realized. I only get "air", and no heat coming out, but I get a great AC. What is this substance in my car? If I don't suck it out, I am scared that my car will overheat again. How can I fix this?
have the same problem?
