Since I have a hard time remembering things...
One thing I did to help keep track of my coolant lvl was to put a peice of masking tape on the overflow bottle and mark where thelvl is at when hot and another for cold. Now all I have to do is take a quick glance and know exactly if any coolant has gone missing.

You might want to do this too just to keep an eye on it for a while.

Nice to have your car back huh?

Holding our breaths is a understatement...heh...just went thru close scenerio...
drove to work first time 0400...interstate....try to monitor your gauges with no backlighting..
hehe...checked level at work...good...drove home after work and drove normally..passed
as necessary in traffic...flipped Hawaiian good-luck sign at on ramp
where my first problem occured weeks earlier.

Keep the faith....and monitor your coolant levels
fanatically..Good Luck...

Well I took her out for a quick drive and found no smoke coming out of the tail pipe. At start (no smoke), In drive (no smoke), driving around back streets doing 35 as an avarge speed (no smoke) coming from a stand still at a stop sign and then acc (no smoke, when use to thats when i knew smoke was there), doing about 70 to get this baby going (no smoke), so, so far so good. I will keep and eye on my coolant and keep an eye on the exaust, hopefully the is the end to the embarrasing smoke problem.

{You don't have a kid that would get off on sticking the garden hose up ole Dad'* Bonnie tail pipe do you ? (Trying for that more rumbly sound after the baffles rot out [I'm not saying I ever did this to my dad'* car][ok, it was my mom'*])}.

Your car just had to go out for one last smoke, didn't it?

Hopefully you just developed a little condensation as you were sitting at the light. Short trip, cool muffler, cold cat, cool night (maybe not where you live?).

Boosty will have the answer, as he does his Grape Nuts and coffee tomorrow .

I imagine you pumped a bit of oil or coolant into the exhaust..

It'll take a bit of heat in the exhaust before it all burns off. Glad to hear you are no longer impersonating the blue angels and all seems well.

Well things are not looking good, I have been noticing and stong smell from the exaust and smoke coming from the tail pipe. Same as I started with the large amount of smoke. I looked at it closely, and after looking very hard, it is blue smoke coming from the tail. Where do I go from here on trying to get this smoke away.
