Yes, check for a stuck thermostat.. pull out the thermostat and see how it runs then put a new on in or put the thermostat in boiling water and see if it is opening.. should be a minor issue

Replaced head gaskets but still have white smoke out tail pipe

NOTE: Water vapor will collected in the exhaust system and will burn it off as steam until the pipes get hot enough to boil it off when starting a cold engine. That being said:
you could indeed have a crack in the head, or crack in the water jacket. You may or may not be able to spot some contamination of oil in the coolent or vice-versa, i would check for that too.

Why would my truck be shooting lots of water out of my exhaust an not be getting any into the oil?

Is your coolant level going down? If so, then the leak in the head gasket is between a cylinder and a cooling port. If no coolant is lost, are you sure you're just noticing the condensed water blowing out from teh catalytic converter just after you start the truck? You won't see water after everything is hot because the water vapor is steam and you can't see it on a hot day.

1989 corvette overheaTING, ANTI FREEZE IN OIL

Antifreeze in the oil (water in the oil) is classic blown head gasket. Do not drive your car until you have this serious problem fixed by a professional. Continued driving will only worsen the damage already caused by this condition.

Thanks for allowing me to assist you this evening.

89 f250 overheated and stalled 3 times. I replaced thermostat and water pump. Looks like water got in my oil as ists foamy and over filled. Truck will turn over and tries to fire but wont start

Sounds like your head gasket has gone bad. you may have noticed white smoke comeing out of the exhust. do not run this engine without changeing the oil or you will destroy the engine, and if the head gasket is leaking it will dump water or antifreeze into the oil can take a compression check on the engine to tell you what head gasket is bad.

Well, this definitely sounds like you have a blown head gasket, and maybe a busted heater core (water vapor out of air vents). Both were probably caused by the car overheating creating a lot of pressure in the cooling system and blowing the head gasket(s) and maybe the heater core. The vapor out of the vents could also be caused by external coolant leakage of the head gasket on the hot engine bringing the vapor inside the cab via the heater fan...

I'd get that checked before any major engine damage happens...

HELP 86 GL-10 /getting hot

This can be a slipping belt, a worn out water pump, a damage fan or the worst of all a burnt cylinder head gasket. Turbos running at high pressures tend to blow the cylinder head gaskets. Also check the radiator.
