Was actually 43 degrees and sunny here in Ohio today. Roads were dry and first time in it in about 6 weeks. Topped the tank off and felt good to get in it

Last night I stopped by the shop doing my mods to remind myself of what she looks like (she's been there since just after Thanksgiving).

So for now it seems I'll just have to continue to live vicariously through you folks on this thread.

I fixed the infamous coolant leak. The dealer couldn't figure it, I couldn't, and many here
seemed to think it was the radiator cap or caused by coolant tank level above ADD
line. Well after 2 yrs of amazing luck that the coolant did not affect and engine parts or
belt I bought a Billet Tecnology thermostat neck housing and solved the problem
completely. The job takes 15 minutes and you need a socket for the bolts and flat head
to take off clamp and lightly pry up on the housing. If you do this order a new JET 180 thermostat, as it will come with a new gasket. Remove old clean area and add a small layer of RED RTV gasket silicone to ensure all will seal properly. Put everything back the way it came off and you'll never have that mysterious coolant all over that area of the motor again!
I had to replace 1/2 gallon of coolant, I used Zerex.

Yes., and it sneaks out the bottom of the therm housing and blows all over the head
and parts around. Make sure you use a thin coating of the RED RTV and you'll kiss
the problem goodbye or be pissed and me instead!
I did buy and try the STAT radiator cap 1st and nothing.
