Oil is not milky same purple color it was this morning this happen after i changed my gaskets on my headers did add a lil to much oil but not much (since been drained.) But oil was not milky at all. all i know is bottom hose on radiator is cold to touch and top is hot dunno how i could have messed up something within the hour it took my to put on new dizzy and change gaskets on headers.

While dizzy was on had it running it ran fine for a while this only happened after putting lil to much oil.

Well lets see here. Overheating doesnt excatlly mean HG is out but it very well could be. I would bet more on water pump not circulating coolant or radiator is plugged up. If ou fan isnt coming on then your going to overheat forsure. Hmm have you changed or checked your water pump lately?

Gonna do that tomorrow tired of looking at it. Just wanted to get some of ya'lls professional input so i can start cheap and go up looked up prices for water pump 38 bucs is not bad. Gonna replace thermostat sender plug (under dizzy) fan switch sensor (on thermostat housing) gonna check fan by running 12v to it also checked relay under dash looks good, gonna check relay under hood tomorrow may just replace and gonna flush and run water through radiator to see if its clogged i just don't see how a clog can happen in a matter of 2 hours which is what confuses me. (BEEN doing hw on this last 2 hours)

probably was a plug..I would still change the water pump, if shes stock, it'll probably go soon along with the timing belt.
these parts are fairly inexpensive when compared to the amount of BS you go through when they fail.
