Hello Group! I have 1989 Thunderbird with the infamous 3.8L V6 engines.
About a month ago I attempted to flush my radiator due to my car
overheating and not trying to blow the head gasket. The radiator was
clogged badly. So I got a brand new radiator for $80 and installed it
today. After I got it in and fired it up, I noticed a lot of water
coming from my tail pipe. So, I took it for a test run, still drips but
not as bad as it first did. Now, I've been told that water from the
tail pipe is normal. Should I go with the info I've gotten or do I need
to dig deeper into it all to find the cause. I know that my Tbird is
prone to blow head gaskets, new radiator is a temp fix until I can
afford one of those nice 4.6L V8's for it. Or could it be the water
pump, and if it is the cause, why? I just changed it 13 months ago when
I purchased it with a Motorcraft water pump. Please help!
