I agree that a small amount of water when cold is normal. But if the water smell sweet, might be a sign of a bigger problem. Like Qman asked, Are you loosing coolant in the radiator?
If you plan on doing the job yourself, I can help you get parts including a good head, and advise if you need it.

The water blowing from the exhaust is definitely coolant, green color. I'm in the Portland area, so any help on parts would be a plus. I will have to obtain a pressure tester and perform the test with the cardboard between the head and exhaust. This vehicle has been overheated and repaired twice before i received it. Has an overheating issue usually when climbing hills such as heading west out of the tunnel on 26. I believe the radiator could use a update. Anywhere locally to buy a larger rad?
Thanks for the info to all.

Over the summer I got a 2-row rad from a place in Sweet Home, OR. It's a Silla brand, very low price and it seems to be high quality (been driving with it for 6 months now....) See my post in that thread for my trials and tribulations, though. Wasn't a true "drop in", but in the end I'm satisfied.
