    My 94 daily driver keeps blowin radiator caps and gets hot then comes back down to temp. I figured it was the thermostat. anyone else have this problem. possibly the fan switch?

    have you flushed the cooling system? your coolant may be shot. replace the thermostat, if that doesn't cure the problem flush the coolant out and replace it with some new stuff but make sure you flush the sedimentout of the cooling system with some filtered water.

    There's a possibility it is your water pump.

    And if your problem still persists than +2 on the water pump.

    it is possible if the head gasket is somehow covering the coolant chanels... but i don't think that is the case. did you do all the things to the car that we suggested? do those first to make sure that none of those is the problem.

    did you have the head milled and checked for cracks. they didnt check mine and i guess its cracked cause itll blow bubbles out of the radiator, it looks like its boiling but its not even warm. put a new thermostat in it if that doesnt help, then check out the head.
