New Head Gaskets - Coolant Leak?
I just started my engine after valve guide repair. I was watching the gages and for external leaks. The temp gage climed up to about 3/4. I shut the engine off and the radiator spewed. I know that I need to purge the air out, but is that normal. I had the cap off to watch the level of coolant. It is only about 50 degrees in the garage. Is this too early to see a coolant leak?
