I have a 99 ranger just hit 200000miles and took a crap. It was running hot than died. I had it towed home and messed with it Saturday. Got it started but it was running rough and water/coolant poured out of the exhaust....I check the coolant and it was low so I added some more. Changed the plugs and wires cause they really needed it. Getting a new battery cause it's old and can't hurt.
My thoughts are the overhead gasket is busted or the worse heads...any other ideas.
