Question about Lincoln Navigator
Hi the beige substance will most likely be either oil which has foamed up in the hot water or sludge from the system.
The only way would be to flush out the system and check make sure there is no air locks if this persists after you have done this then oil must be leaking into the water system somewhere, most like the head gasket. as it is getting hot so quickly It looks like thats all it could be.
I would get a second opinion about the head Gasket.

I had the same problem before. I was told to look under the oil cap to see if there was a sludge (coffee colored) under the cap. Usually the muffler will be smoking, white smoke and water drips. this is usually a head gasket. But all should be ok, don't worry. a friend of mine advised me to go to autozone and get a headgasket sealer. I purchase the one in a green slender plastic bottle. It was about $20. I also changed the oil and filter as well. And my car runs perfectly. (follow the instructions to the T) don't half step any of the instructions. A lot of people I know talked down on doing this, but it worked for me. And I saved 1500 dollars. I'm sure they didn't care if I spent that much to fix my car, so I guess you could say I saved 1450 dollars. Good Luck and I hope your car works soon!
