Overheating problem

Ok I have a 1989 gt pretty much stock have everything new pretty much rebuild and cleaned heads water pump e303 cam stocks rods roclers ect. Say I drive it about a mile or so just to where the motor is really hot and ya I feel as if it gets too hot but thats just me well then the water just shoots out everywhere like brown nasty water im thinking that I need to take it out and flush it? Or maby its because theres nothing but water in the radiator and a little bit of antifreeze because of a leak I used to have do I need a new radiator?? Fan or something and the thermostat is brand new so thats not the problem but maby someone could hook me up with some tips ideas concerns something that could possibly fix this issue thanks a lot.

Brown, Nasty Stuff ??? Sounds like a Blown / Leaking Head Gasket, Warped Head or Cracked Head. Probably a Head Gasket. Sounds like you got oil in your water. Does it look all nasty on the dipstick too ? If it is you more than likely have a blown head gasket.

Brown yucky water just might be rusty crud


Overheating......did you install the tstat correctly?


Also you can go to Advanced or whatever and they will rent you for free a pressure tester and check out your cooling system.

No the gaskets are fine like I said everything is brand new I recently fixed the problem by flushing it out and ya it was probably dirty due to the blown head gaskets back then but now she seams to be running better with new antifreeze oh btw it says do not add water but I still do anyway

Yeah they loan you a tool with a credit card as deposit and when you return they refund you the deposit. So it is free......
