Question about Cars & Trucks
Bypassed heater core now it runs rough dogs out and shuts down. I did notice gold colored fluid in radiator when refilling.
There are a LOT of things that can cause your car to run poor and shut down but it sounds like you think the coolant system is the problem. If that was the case, your car would overheat.
Usually the first things to suspect are poor gas (like water in your gas), loose fitting spark plug wires, old spark plugs. If spark plugs and spark plug wires are good, you might suspect a fuel filter or even a fuel pump.

Testimonial: "It was running beautifully before I had to bypass the heater core. It was top notch 100 percent. Its not overheating either. After I bypassed the heater core I drove it approximately 2 miles and it started running rough the temp was accaully way down. I stopped at a store and when I started it back up it started hard and I noticed I had to feather the clutch to keep it running. Didn't even go 1 more mile and had to pull over because it just would not go. Then it stalled and wouldn't start. I pulled the radiator cap slowly and it spit and blew for a bit air out off it. The fluid is nasty looking not sure why. Dark rusty colored and foamy."
