First you need to LEFT click just once in the IMG tag (circled in red below)
* if you accidentally right click simply left click in the area again.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And it will turn blue


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

now RIGHT click the same area to bring up the options and just LEFT click on COPY, (the option window will close once you do)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


go to BC and in the Message field Right click to bring up the option window and Left click on Paste.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

and your IMG tag will appear.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------^^^^^^^^

To actually See your pics you need to click the preview button down below the Message Body

I hope this helped.

But first you need a photo hosting site like http://photobucket.com/
After joining (it'* free) you upload the pictures from your hard drive to an album in Photobucket.

I hope this works guys. I greatly appreciate all the generous help. The UIM is upside down and if you look at the right side port (there is alot of white around it) it has melted. I believe coolant flows there. I have replaced it. The question is--what caused it and are there any potential consequences from it having happened.

Thanks in advance for the info.

What color of coolant are you running? Red, Orange, or Green?

Did the car overheat? Before or after you owned it?

Default coolant

I am running Green coolant. I have never had it overheat on me. Recently installed a new rad and I just had to change the thermostat because we had problems bringing the engine up to temperature.

Thanks

The only other solution besides grossly overheating that car is a clogged catalytic converter causing your crossover pipe to overheat, cooking the UIM in the process.

Default melted

Sorry for the blurry pics. It seems that close ups are blurry from a digital camera. Is there a way to take close ups without them being as blurry?? At any rate--these pics are progressively moving away so you can see the damage. The overall UIM itself is not warped or damaged in anyway--just the port which is white has melted away.

I will have the cat punched and report back.

Again, thanks so much for your kind assistance,

Ravi
