I hate to be a downer. But...
I think this may be bad news. The D2 temperature gauge is notoriously useless, so if it registered a spike in temperature, the engine has probably overheated seriously. If the heads are not cracked, they will no doubt be, as you mention, warped. You may have slipped a sleeve, too. Check your oil and see if there is any sign of coolant leaking in, or if there are any signs of oil in the coolant, if there is it may be a cracked block. The bubbling in the coolant leads one to believe that the head gaskets have failed and that is also bad news. (Man I hate to tell you this stuff...) There are many threads on this forum and others that outline what steps to take in the case of an overheated engine, and they are all pretty expensive. There are guys on this forum that know more about this, let's see if I am just a doomsayer or if I may be on the right track, but I have a really bad feeling about your engine, and I am sorry that this is your first post with these problems! I really hope I am wrong.
There is ONE ray of hope; check out the sticky entitled A"MUST Read For Anyone About to Repair a Head Gaskets or a Valve Train Noise. You will find it at the beginning of the posts for Discovery 2 models on this very forum. Maybe, just maybe, you might not have the problem I fear....
