One of them has a red color if I recall correctly, maybe k&w?
They definitely have a distinct smell, I find the reddish color and smell a dead give away.
Edit Note: Napa, and others I'm sure, sell a tester for head gaskets. Its a plastic tube affair with a suction bulb at the top. You put some of the supplied liquid in it and if it changes from a blue color to a yellow then combustion gasses are present in the coolant. I think its like $20 or so, another testing option.
Yes!!! Heres the kind of answer I was looking for! Because theres something goin on here besides regular old blowed head gasket andccit has me puzzled but ive owned the truck 2 years put about 30000 miles on it and have never used any of that crap. So is it possible that it was put in before I got it and is just now coming back out?
