Default 100* Day With A S2 L67

Today it got up to 100* here. A first while owning the LSS. I don't know if the high speed fans are not doing thier jobs cause I damn near overheated. Probably hit 240* for a good 5 minutes while cruising gentily on the highway. I have a 180* T-stat and there is coolant in the resivior. Abeit there is a good cup or so less than a month ago. Maybe time for a flush?

Sounds like you could be getting to that flush time. Always a good precation also. I just drove 132 miles straight from Marty'* house and I never got hotter than 189.8 on my scan tool. I had my high speed fans on the whole way home too.

Did you have you're AC on full blast. I went 160 miles transporting 4 whiney old farts that needed it 20* in the car. I thought I would get hypothermia.

I bet. At least having a sunroof helps. Still with this heat it prolly just feels like a blow torch.

Yeah, my car was running hot too. According to the bank clock when I ran up and got laundry detergent it was 102*. I have an IV line hooked up to a bottle of ice cold water. J/K but I wish I did -I feel like toast and I've hardly even been in the sun.

And my A/C Compressor started on fire after you left Nate. I started the car to pull it around back so it wasn't blocking the driveway and by the time I parked it out back it was on fire. I remembered dad had a fire extinguisher in the 56 Oldsmobile two cars away so I grabbed it and had the fire out before any damage was done outside the A/C compressor.

I had to back out of the driveway, and around the block so I could get to the alley. As bad as the yard looks I couldn't drive across it.

Well, the large plume of smoke and the stench were pretty much a dead give away
