: coolant coming out of overflow hose like faucet '97 Eldo

04-04-05, 08:58 PM
I've put about 600 miles on '97 Eldorado. Today for no apparent reason coolant stated blowing out overflow hose like water from a faucet. Temp guage was a little past halfway but not HOT. Oil looks clean. Please help if you can. Today it reached around 80 Degrees for first time this year. Could it be thermostat problem? Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.

That's probably going to be your headgasket(s). A combustion leak is pressurizing your cooling system. You don't necessarily have to have the oil and water mix when a headgasket fails. There aren't many other explanations for such behavior if the car isn't overheating.

It is probably the head gaskets if it is not overheating. There are diagnostic tests to verify what the cause is. Are you going to fix it yourself or take it in?
