Coolant bubbling out of overflow bottle?
So my buddie has a bluebird in his classic. the motor has been through hell and back.. twice.
we rebuilt the motor once, and this problem started.
turns out the head lifted, and the motor overheated.
so we pulled the head off, and had it re-surfaced.
new headgasket, with plenty of copper spray. and the damn car still gets hot, and water boils ouit of the overflow on the rad. checked the thermo, it was stuck open, so that doesnt explain the overheating.
the car has GTI-r ecu, injectors, turbo, mani, 3" exhuast, fmic, s-afc.
since its hot as hell recently, he removed the thermo completely, to see if that will do it. but i am wanting other ideas/explanations..
