REALLY?

MY posts are being deleted yet advice like this is allowed to stand?

It is COMMON knowledge that expansion and contraction of engine parts causes leaks that cause running issues.

Since my last response was removed, even though it contained further advice for the OP, actual good advice, I will try once again.

Check the coolant temp sensor at the back of the engine, in the crossover tube. It could cause a cold/hot drivability issue, and is reportedly a common failure.
