Out of the blue, after great period of service, sudden spikes of heat bleed off enough coolant to cause serious overheating while she's driving. I bring the car home and while I'm driving it the temp gauge is spiking to max even after shut off and coasting... first two thoughts are pump/stat failures, but the initial behavior is indicative of air in the cooling passages inside the cylinder head around the sensor. Is there a simple test possible to eliminate a cracked cylinder head without tearing apart the top end?
