....if you let the car sit for a bit when it's hot, residual pressure will fill the cylinders causing some hydro-lock, then once it's started and the antifreeze is cooked off you reverse pressurise the coolant system with exhaust gasses.....bubbling and sloshing due to low coolant and exhaust gasses in the coolant....yes...blown head gasket...sorry...
