So now my car will overheat unless I have the heater on full blast.

Also it started breaking up badly on my last few runs of the day. Driving it home it did not break up.

Has my headgasket failed? The thermostat is new. I will check the coolant for oil tonight.

if there's oil in the coolant or vise verse, it will look like brown gravy. mmmm gravy.

have you flushed the cooling system? there might be some scale buildup in the radiator, or a plugged coolant galley. i'd flush it if there's no oil in the coolant.

I got matt to install the cooling parts because my radiator blew up when he FOERST got the car running. I assume he did flush it.

Let me know if you need those parts, Clint. I got the engine fan and electric fan sitting in the garage collecting paint dust.

If you got gravy train that sucks man.

Elec fans didn't look like good ones. Get some cheap altima fans from the junkyard or get a clutch fan. My dad might have some altima fans he wants to sell.

and the rad looked a little nasty inside.
