Well, wont say this is the first post i made, but sure comes close.. ^_^
About a week and a half ago, I purchased a 95 Bonneville SE with almost everything a SSE has besides the diff steering, moonroof and supercharger. It does have the OBD II connector. Vin # 1G2HX52K8S4294xxx ( dont wanna give out my entire vin number
Series II NA motor. Enuf on what the car came with... LOL
Anyways, I have a few probs with this car. Mostly the tranny TCC/PCM/Whatever prob shuddering, but im not gonna even start on that now...
I woke up this mornin, to find about a quarter or half cup of coolant on my driveway. This is the first time it has done this... Not that i had it long to really be able to tell...
Anyways, I checked the elbow under the pcv valve, lower radiator hose, radiator for what i can see and waterpump the best i could. All i could find was a tiny bit of coolant on the lower radiator support leakin straight thru the middle. Upon further inspection of that area, i found one of my trans cooler lines that go to the radiator tend to drip a little at the quick disconnect fiting or whatever that is... I did see a tiny bit of oil or something around the lower intake gasket seal... nothing dripping, but deff seepage maybe. Besides this the car runs fine for the most part...
Im afraid to drive the car, have almost no to way to work without beggin or pleading or heavy bribery. I traded in my good workin 89 mustang to this, and now having tons o fun as u can see... :(
It looks like its coming from passanger side, but cant find a leak anywhere! If pics are needed, i can take a few... Here'* the prob tho. I spent every dollar i have for the next 2 months buying this car and year of insurance. Its currently 15 degrees outside. Would a third or so bottle of bars pinch me thru winter without causing problems? Or should i take the car back and demand it be inpsected by the GM dealership. ( I didnt have a warranty available, and all paperwork says as-is :\ ) Thing is, when i test drove it, it drove nothing like it did a week later... I swear they just thru some additives in that wore off... Im so stressed rite now bout this, cuz no car no job... no job no car no food no house..
