My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

Ths issue here may be due to a leaking cylinder head gasket where the head gasket is leaking internally with no fluid loss externally or any fluids mixing.The exhaust heat and gasses can leak past the gasket into the cooling system causing this fault with the cylinder head gasket needing to be replaced.

What needs to be done from here is to have what is called a block test done by a shop or dealer to see if this is the cause here.If it is found that exhaust heat and gasses are leaking into the cooling system this is usually a head gasket leak needing to be replaced.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks Pete

thank you Pete. all that and more, but what got me is it is like a air lock because it not getting any water in the oil or cylinder and run good but get hot at idle and blow the water out. I thought may have a second thermostat at the back of motor. Can not see or get at back, so motor is coming out. see on you tube that one bloke said his had porous aluminium heads but did not say what it was doing. Thank Robbie

Your welcome Robbie

A head gasket can leak internally to where the coolant only leaks into the exhaust or the exhaust leaks into the coolant.There are several ways the gasket can leak and this one will not show up as oil and coolant mixing or any fluid leaks on the ground at all.I have seen several head gasket failures like this in the past before.I would have the block test done to see if this is the cause here for sure.A porous head can also cause the same issue.

Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help here or above ( should be a link to click on ) as this is how I receive credit for my time, this can be done at any time and you can still come back here and reply if needed.Your 5-star rating is appreciated

Thanks Pete
