Do a cooling system flush the cooling ports in the engine maybe clogged. Prestone Super Flush is really good.

That's been done also,could it be a busted head gasket?

If you done all of that and the cooling system flush do believe it is a blown head gasket.

That's what my husband and I think also. I just wanted someone else's opinion too.Its going back to the mechanic tomorrow morning for one last shot.Thanks
