where can be the problem? bubbles in coolant?

Recommended Posts

Okay, just got back with my 83 wagon from Jersey, 3300 miles. I spoke earlier of overheating, which was really not a problem on the way home[i cleaned rad, backflushed, and put a new upper hose on] It still ran a little hot though, and i noticed today, little bubbles in the coolant. I revved it up, and it foamed up, but i still have them. I just ordered a new radiator today, but can it be something else. I noticed a little coolant drip around the cross member section[near the oil pan gasket] is that something i should get checked out, before i put the new radiator in, or will this stop that from leaking. I really don't understand why coolant would be dripping from that area? Can someone help?

head gasket can be fixed, but your problem may not be that. There are some coolant lines on the intake manifold, and you could have a leak there somewhere - look closer to see. If it's a head gasket, you can fix that by putting in another. Check for cracks in the heads, cause you will have to remove them for the gasket job. Oh - and get a manual. For bigger jobs like headgaskets, it will come in handy.
