When you say that you checked the coolant did you check the coolant in the radiator or at the radiator cap or in the overflow bottle when it was cold?
Overflow bottle, it was empty so I taught. I added some coolent but it didn't take much to have the overflow reach full. So I was in brooklyn,ny then got back on the parkway and drove home. Temp gauge ran from normal to hot while stuck in traffic. When I was out of traffic and driving, it dropped to one bar above normal
ok let me go check it out. be back soon.
So far so good. I filled up the radiator untill it wouldn't take any more She is still running and temp gauge looks good. I'm going to taking for a spin to really get the engine hot and see what happens. Thanks for the help. I will let you know the out come when I get back. Plus I never saw any leak underneath the car. It was dry.
Okay, things look great. Before the test drive fans were working and still at normal temp. Take a ride on the parkway at high speeds and still running normal. Yes lets pray it continues to run like a dream. Thanks for all your help.
