Default Oh boy looks like I got a head gasket

Ok had a heater hose blow and truck got pretty hot, replaced the hose, impossible to get the air out, steam, water you name it coming out of radiator when it warms up, at first no condensation or smoke at tail pipe then when it gets up there to running temp I guess here it comes, 2003 Nissan Frontier supercharged, looks like this is going to be a pain in the butt! THANKS!

When an engine with an aluminum head begins to overheat, the first lesson is to SHUT IT DOWN right away. Do NOT try to make it to the next exit. Walk to the exit or call for a tow truck.
