Re: 1989 5.0 starting problems
The vehicle was shutdown to allow it to cool down. Coolant was added and the vehicle, though hotter than normal was driven 9 miles home. It idled and ran fine. The waterpump was determined to be the problem. It has not started since the pump weas replaced. I thought that if engine ran ok until i got it home, the heads or head gasket could be runned out.
I have been trying to figure how I could have goofed up the timing.
These responses are great. I appreciate the support.
