Re: 89 deisel laurel using water

Try a pressure test on the cooling system. Put some pressure on it while its running the gage should pulsate with a leaking head gasket. A good radiator shop can do an analysis of the system and give you a definate answer.
Even doing the work yourself I would want to be sure before starting.
