head gasket failure

92 Plymouth Sundance is not blowing any heat and there are some air bubbles moving in the rad and overflow, is this a sign of a cracked head gasket or maybe a faulty thermostat?
Thanks

What does temp. indicator read? You may be lucky and just have a clogged radiator. How long since flush or coolant change? Are you losing coolant? A lot of bubbles normally means you have combustion gas getting into cooling system.

Darrell: This model has known gauge fluctuation problems from Chrysler per bulletins on the same.

Original poster: A shop can use a gas analyzer in your coolant/radiator to determine if you have HC in your coolant. If you do, blown gasket/cracked cylinder head .
