Engine Cooling problem
1987 Nissan Truck 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 167000 miles
ok gauge not real aquarate. Truck loss power cause no water in truck. Got extremely hot. Towed home, cooled off got started without water. Put water in it and it pours out of radiator and near #4 cylinder. Replaced head gasket and same issue. With radiator cap in place it imediately pours out through the overflow. There appears to be alot of pressure pushing the water out. Could a crack be betrween the cylinder wall of the water jacket forcing the compression air through the water port and pushing the water out the lest path of resistance?
Rich in alabama. The temp gauge went to 3/4 but never to hot so I though I had water in it.
I like this truck alot and want to get it running!
have the same problem?
