Default Re: Help with radiator cap spray

The timing is dead on. I increase fuel and slightly retard spark when pulling a hill.

What gives? Where would you start? What would be other symptoms of a head gasket problem? Anyone think that could be it?

Thanks!
Make sure the radiator isn't brim full. Just fill to where the water or coolant is just covering the tubes by maybe 1/4 inch or so.

Same thing happens to me if I over fill it.
