OR SO WE THOUGHT!
after a few weeks of good running it's back... the strange foamy overflow... not everytime the engine runs though... here's what happened today:
son was on his way home from work, stopped at a friends, turned the engine off and immediately heard the foam dripping from the overflow tank... after letting things cool down we drove it home and let it cool before taking the t-stat out (which we never did)... went out to pull it and we popped the rad cap to see if it was full, it wasn't so as we were off gettin a jug of water the foam started pouring out of the radiator itself... got the jug, poured water in until full which stopped the foam... rad cap back on and watched the temp gauge... heats up to almost in the red, fans kick on & cools back to 210... over & over 3 or 4 times then gets into the red and we shut it off... an hour later the kid leaves for home on the way there he says it did the heat up/cool off thing all the way home... come to a stop, heat up... start moving, fans kick in and cools off... 5 or 6 times then as he's pulling up to house it gets in the red...
tomorrow we are pulling the t-stat to see if that will keep the temp down but thats obviously not the problem... ideas? suggestions?
thanks for the help! anyone goin to moab next month for the NAXJA thing?
