    Busted Hose and Overheating issue

    Hello everyone, got an 85 van 2wd with a busted hose spraying coolant everywhere. This morning on the way to work my temp gauge needle went all the way to the top and coolant reservoir was bubbling and gurgling with lots of steam coming from overfill cap, Iím no stranger to this as my thermostat and radiator had to be replaced and recored to fix that same issue. After doing that I hadnít had a problem until now.

    I was was worried that it was something more serious but after pouring some coolant through the radiator, I noticed one of my hoses was spraying coolant everywhere. In my mind itís as easy as just replacing that hose but lots of other people on the Toyota van Facebook page are saying head gasket failure. Iím hoping that theyíre wrong but then again Iím just a beginner so Iím hoping somewhere on this site someone can give me a straight answer. Here is an attached pic. Thanks

    Looks like the rear heater hose. Their are many threads regarding head gaskets and how to diagnose a faure as well as info on diagnosing all over the internet. The only way to know for sure is to perform proper diagnostics or pay someonewho is qualified to do it.

    I replaced the faulty hose and radiator cap, still overheating canít even get above 30 mph without the needle shooting way up and the coolant reservoir boiling over. On to the next step
