2000 SPORT
I have a 2000 explorer sport with a 4.0. My wife went to the store tonight and it was sputtering and idling funny, then the check engine light came on. I went out to look at it and I smelled something funny. I crawled underneath it and I could see where some antifreeze was splattered all the way back underneath it. Radiator was full but overflow bottle was almost empty. I asked her if she had been checking her fluids and she said yes and when the antifreeze got low in the bottle she filled it. She says that every couple of hundred miles the bottle was almost empty. Is this a sign of a blown head gasket. Where should I start looking. Thanks for the help.
