X2 on head gasket, especially if you hear bubbling when you turn off the ignition and the overflow is emptying out.

When my car was doing that, I had a small coolant leak and possibly a bad thermostat. Due to some work, I had to take off the rubber coolant hose by the cam position sensor. After breaking the 100,000+ mile bond between the rubber coolant hose and metal tubing, it just wouldn't seal up any more even with the clamp in the same exact position. After a new hose and a new thermostat were put in, my problem disappeared.

Im leaning towards the head gasket, and maybe stretched bolts. I figure ill take care of both when im in there

ARP headstuds and what gasket? im thinking probably stock.

Doug, any local places you would recommend to do that? I don't think I feel like doing it myself.

55k on the car now. ya, im considering the water pump and timing belt. Ill probably do em both while im in there.

also, my compression hasn't really dropped, but i noticed that the ejecting of coolant is more obvious under high load and WOT.... makes me feel like the bolts are stretched/gasket.

This was what happened to me when my headgasket failed! Coolant would piss out all over the place under wot. Unfortunately I didn't notice so quickly and got a real bad overheat.

UPDATE:

I took the radiator cap off and let the car run from cold until about 190*F.

It seemed fine at start, no bubbles.

As the car got right about 190* it started spewing out coolant pretty bad. I couldn't see any visible bubbles but it did seemed like there was a lot of air pushing it out (again, no bubbles).

I had to cut the car off after that, it did not get hot enough for the fans to come on.

Does this help anyone troubleshoot?
