my damn radiator is leaking now. so i was driving today and noticed that my temp gaue was at 240. wtf mad mind you that todays temp got up to 110, so you know i had the ac blowing. so i got home waited about 2 hours for the car to calm down, and what do you know no coolant is visible in the radiator. my low coolant sensor isnt working, and new one is $130 from the dealer. i try to check it once a week before i drive to make sure its coolant in there. i added the good ol trusted green stuff. started the car drove it to the store and back, about a 15 mile trip, and when i got back popped the hood. what do you know........the left end cap of the rad is drippig coolant.

now i have to price a rad for riv.....which im sure isnt goona be cheap. sometimes i dislike this car very much...... headbutt shoot rockets
