I have an 01 WR426. Been runinng awesome. Have been checking the oil/coolant before every ride. Road over to my buddys house and right as I got there it started steaming and overheated(Twice actually, after put water in it). I don't see it leaking coolant anywhere? I figured with it dumping that much I would see it? Any thoughts on this? Thanks

I'm gonna do that tommorrow. Thats a head gasket right? That a tough replacememt?

try a new radiator cap part store ford ranger v6 3.0 year 2000 fits your radiator if its not that check for pinched breather tube have you had your seat or gas tank off lately if its not that oder new gasket set because its probly a head gasget only cost me 45 dollers to do mine but im good with tools if you have a manual its pretty easy fix good luck.

....and don't use tap water in your radiator!! It's full of calcium and will destroy the water passages. Use Distilled and a coolant mixture, or a 'non-water' fluid like Water Wetter.
