Mine does that if I over fill the reservoir.
Have you tried letting it "puke out" and then NOT adding any additional coolant and then trying another WOT pass?

Yes! And welcome!


It's nice to have some more Bullitts in our ranks. There's a thread in the "Special Edition" forum titled "Let's See Your Bullitt", post some pics when you get a chance.

The reservoir doesn't need to be over filled by too much for it to overflow. Hopefully, that's all there is to your problem.

Could this be a burping issue? Air in the coolant system?

1. Did you replace the cap with an OEM from Ford? Don't use a Stant or aftermarket cap. The parts guy will likely swivel in his chair and grab it from the shelf behind him because it's a high failure item. Same cap used on Ford trucks BTW.
Make certain the threads on the coolant tank aren't stripped. That's one reason why you don't use an aftermarket cap except in an emergency. The ones I have seen do NOT have the tighten till it clicks and slips feature and people tighten them down like the hammers of hell and strip the threads on the tank.
I just replaced my cap and it was like $12.00 from Ford. Mine was seeping.
Make sure the rubber gasket on the cap is free from debris and the old rubber gasket from the old cap didn't get stuck on the coolant tank.

Boiling over coolant is almost always either a blockage or overheating.

Put the front of the car up on jack stands or ramps, take the cap off the coolant resovoir and run the car until the thermostat opens. Squeeze the radiator hoses and "burp" the baby

If that doesn't work, just as a test, take the thermostat out and run the car without it.
If you still have problems, then you are looking at a blockage which is probably in the radiator.

One last thing, I'm not sure if this is even possible on the Mustang but make sure the hoses are not reversed.
I had this on a Volvo and it drove me nuts.
It was actually possible to reverse two hoses and the coolant was flowing against itself causing this exact problem.

Keep us posted!

Yeah we had it replaced with a oem cap he had laying around cause the old cap wasent holding pressure im positive the hose aint reversed it could be a blockage in the radiator ima go ahead and do a 170 thermostat just for save measure since shes gonna need it Down The Line When i Add The UpComing Mods im sure its somthing minor or could just be the Coolant reservoir it self cause car is not overheating ima post a video of it In a Few Mins Just to show whats going on with it thanks for all the helps guys!
