I have a 92 with a 3.0.  

Driving home from a fun week I noticed the temperature spike in a down hill after a climb. It did this once before  on a traffic jam at the bottom of a hill. There was a rest stop so I pulled over, let it cool and took off, temp spiked again. Tried a third time and still over heating.  Towed it home. The radiator took about  gallon and a quart. 

It starts fine but I haven't stressed it yet. My first thought was blown head gasket but no white smoke, bubbles in the radiator or sludge in the oil. I'm not sure if the antifreeze loss is from consumption of barfing it out after overheating. I am going to pull the plugs today.
