Question about Nissan Xterra
It can be caused by any number of things.
A stuck thermostat, low coolant, failed water pump, and so on.
The general answer is too much heat from the engine.

SOURCE: possible cracked block or head
Have you checed the thermostat, often when they are locked closed a vehicle will overheat and "regergitate" fluid through the overflow. And just so you know noone can tell by a "carbonation test if you have a problemb. (a carbonation test tells you af a change in ph.) wich is not always the affect or result of a blown head/ head gasket.
My sugestion would be change the thermostat. ($20.00) flush cooling system. (Do it yourself $15.00/ and a hose) Drain water and fill with 50/50 mix of coolant and water.

Hi El Faraon,
I believe that you're dealing with 12 mm bolts and nuts....THESE ARE NOT THE SPECS FOR YOUR ENGINE, but I believe that if you use them you'll be close....Tighten in three stages up to 22nm....choose the bolts from the centre of the manifold and circle outwards until you reach the last one.....It may be a good idea to draw an overhead or plan view of the unit, marking out the bolt positions.....Start at the centre and mark the sequence and follow that....What is important is starting at the centre, so that nothing becomes warped....
Hope this helps,

ok, its time for a radiator flush. there is major sludge in the internals of this radiator. Make sure the thermostat is in the correct position as well. I've seen many cars come into my shop with the thermostat inserted backwards.

Typically would not overheat until enough coolant was lost. Find out if they mag fluxed the heads, or had it done. A lot of shops rebuild without doing this step as it's expensive. If they got a rebuilt head, again they need to know if it was mag-fluxed.
It's harder to mag flux the block while in the vehicle and assembled.

Testimonial: "helpful, i will follow up."
if oil is leaking from the the top to bottom, check the gasket below the cover that has the daewoo name and sign on on top of the engine block. it could be cracked. replace with new one without any gasket sealant just replace the original and done
