1994 GMC Vandura 3500 Problems
A coolant leak may develop from the water pump. This can result in an engine overheating condition. A leaking water pump will require replacement.
The intake manifold gasket may develop and external engine oil or coolant leak. In some cases, an internal coolant leak may occur causing coolant to mix with the engine oil. Running the engine with a coolant/oil mix may result in engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct this issue.

Our van will overheat frequently and VOMIT out anti-freeze through the overflow. Very annoying. I don't think it's the head gasket, as it doesn't do it constantly.... Thermostat? Water pump? Something else?
