I checked the wrecker yard already, i was less then impressed, some of them looked worse then mine.

I'm still waiting for my tax return and then payin down my VISA, I plan on getting a new one installed. Probably a good idea, then get my tranny cooler and 180 t-stat installed at the same time.

Good times

The leak is so slow...like 2 or so drips a day, still a PITA.

Decision made.

I'm redirecting some cash flow and I'm goin to replace my radiator. Its not worth putting in the stop leak additive. Guess I'll return it .

I decided the car is worth it to get this fixed....at least it will make me feel better
