Default 95 SE-Should I be concerned?

95 SE owned for over 4 years, total of 163K miles, runs great and great fuel economy, especially on a trip.

I am well aware of the intake problems, and find that I add coolant to the plastic overflow bottle every other week. perhaps a few ounces to the cold mark.

Oil is clean, not milky, no smell from the exhaust. I blew an upper radiator hose last month, and had both hoses replaced, a new t-stat, and a flush and fill.

Suggestions or cautions I should take?

-Thanks

adding a 180 thermo cant hurt....

i suspect the coolant loss is because of the LIM gaskets letting the coolant in but you are burning it off thru combustion....i would recommend the Metal LIM, and a replacement Dillion upper and Buttermore EGR

I do agree with this reccomendation...

Check the Date on the upper intake manifold as it may have been replaced.... You do not want this rupturing on you...

The Intake gaskets and upper intake do degrade over time...
