Well, the distance from when the check engine and dinger went off to where I shut is off was about 4 miles. i knew the garage was there, so when I saw the high temp, i figured I'd have to make it there. It was not over-temp for long. Although thinking back to it, I probably should have left the ignition on so the fans would run, and left the hood up. But, things seem ok.
Maybe. Last week I had an oil change and the oil pan gasket replaced (been menaing to do that for months). Now the 'check oil level' light will come on sometimes right after start up and remain on for a few minutes. I also noticed yesterday that the oil pressure was nearly halfway between the 40 and 120 marks (that'd be 80, i think) for a moment. Today the oil pressure seems to be hanging in the normal neigborhood of about 40 +/- 5.
hmmmm, did I toast the oil level sender when it overheated? dunno, maybe, but why so long to show up?
Oh, and I have two belts, the shorter runs from the crank to the power steering pump and alternator. The longer belt runs the A/C compressor, water pump, and */C. Oh, the mechanic said that the idler pullys sometimes break, cause they are plastic. with 120,000 miles now, should I think about replacing them?
