coolant overflowing from overflow head gaske tblown?
this just started recently but it dosnt happen all the time, one day i was driving down the highway and coolant started pouring out of th over flow and the truck overheated i filled it up and changed the t stat and continued down the road everything was fine. it happened again a couple days later and i did the same thing. then i took the old t stat and cut it wipe open and put it back in the truck it never happned again while the open t stat was in. i just put the new t stat back in a month ago and no problems at all. now yesterday i left my house and the truck started to overheat. i kinda knew wat was goin on so i took it easy filled the syatem up with water and drove home no problems. today i start the truck and immediatly the antifreeze starts pouring out the overflow i wated till the t stat would open but it never did i guess there wasnt enough fluid, shut the truck off and started writing this thread. is there anyway this could not be a head gasket. i dont understand how it can run fine for hundreds of miles then all the sudden act up then run right again and then spew the antifreeze out again. new water pump was installed couple years ago also. and it doesnt spew the coolant out wen its hot it will usually do it on start up wen engine is cold.
