Well, Good News / Bad News. The High idle problem is fixed. Them mechanic said the timing was advanced and someone had adjusted the idle screw above the throttle body. He also changed out the timing belt and water pump for me. I just changed out the radiator, thermostat, upper and lower radiator hoses and a new radiator cap and plugs, at his suggestion. Took the car out for a test drive and it ran great.
Bad news after sitting 2 hours I just tried to start it and all it does is crank. I brought it back in the garage and started checking the spark. The two middle cyclinders shot antifreeze out of them ! The two end cylinders were clear. The vehicle has never overheated. Since I've had it ( 2 weeks). It had been sitting for 4-6 months. Just checked the oil, no antifreeze in it. Under the filler cap is clean oil, no foamy stuff. I did notice when I filled the new radiator, there was a little milky fluid, but it went away. Headgasket? Any suggestions. Thanks. Jeff
