Default Story of my life LOL

Seems I cant get my fans on but the car only gets to 230 ish on my short commute.. tonight on the way home I smell burning.. My UIM blew out under the TB at around 200 deg.. So far since last August when I got the car any and everything that coolant touches has gone bad.. Love this car but smelling coolant on my hands all the time is getting old. LOL I didnt wantto go to work tomorrow anyway. Anyway I wasnt looking for advice I just wanted to rant.. Thanks

LOL the lounge seem a more suitable place for ranting hahaha j/k

just a thought... you might consider a 180* thermostat if you dont have one already... it wont help as much as fans but it would keep more coolant circulating so it might be a thought

good luck with the fix... hopefully the problems will stop soon... i keep praying for mine to stop breaking but im at the point that she needs alot of TLC
