Hey :)


good news I got the radiator cap off by using rubber gloves which gave me extra grip :)

bad news opened Radiator cap and creamy glug comes out... its almost solid [ engine overheats too]

could that be a closed shut thermostat?

or cracked head gasket? cracked head?

not alot of bubbles in there but its creammy crap coming out :(

thanks for any help anyone can give me :)

^^ Absolutely.
Oil and water = gloop that you are seeing.
Bubbles when engine is at idle is also a reliable indicator of head gasket gone.
Head is routinely examined for cracks when gasket is renewed. These often show up when surfaces are very thoroughly cleaned.
