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.

Dan

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!

I replaced my radiator on my 03 lincoln navigator and now there is trans mission oil in my coolant my check engine light is on and the code is p0174 can someone tell me what can be the problem??


code p0174 refers to system too lean bank 2===causes intake/exhaust leak---fuel pressure /pump---injector/s---AIR system---hose connection/s
the transmission oil in the coolant will be from a failed transmission cooler in the radiator tank ( perils of fitting anything but brand new out of the box radiators.)
you have to completely flush out the cooling system as the oil in the system will affect the ability of the coolant to cool the engine
It is also possible that there will be coolant in the transmission as when the pump pressure is lost from stopping the engine ,the radiator pressure will force water back into the transmission.

How to repair the suspension on a 1999 lincoln navigator


Any Navigator that is 4 years old & just out of warranty
you replace the air suspension with conventional conversion
kit

I had a person yesterday that gave a lincoln dealer $9,600
since it was new in 2003 & still wants to pour more into it
& refuses to believe most people do the conversion

Seems the dealers can't solve those issues

On it's cousin the Expedition no problems & their is
air on the back

The Navigator is to Ford as the Oldsmobile was to
GM in the 1960's & later,sort of a test bed of bad ideas

Navigator leaking coolant


Check you to see that you don't have loose or leaking cooling hoses, a bad radiator cap, a loose radiator drain plug, or a failing water pump.

If all these are OK, put a bottle of BAR's radiator stop in the radiator and run the engine in idle for 15 to 30 minutes. Available at your local auto parts store.

If your leak is not to serious, this should fix the problem. Put a bottle of radiator stop leak in your cooling system and repeat the procedure once every six months, to lubricate the water pump and keep leaks sealed.
