Head gasket ???

OK... Hopfully someone out there can tell me I am on the right track. 2003 MDX 3.5, looks like has oil in the coolant, and when you reve engine, coolant shoots out like a gusher. I tested for combution gas. passed the test. I pulled heads thinking head gasket. Don't see anything real obvious. Some bad ares, but can't see why would shoot out like it did. Maybe warpped head ??? Anybody ... Ideas .....

Check your transmission fluid. The radiators are famous for mixing coolant and ATF.

Good luck,

Sam

Re: Head gasket ???

I am trying to think what else could go wrong. There is a water pump that apparently works.

How about radiator cap?
