I can't stop laughing at your picture with the puppets cracking me up where did you get that so I can get one....?
Well I am going to harbor freight today to get a laser thermometer to check the temperatures however I just realized something here. It is not that hot outside now and the car is not overheating so its quite possible I am being over cautious here and the car is fine. I will have to measure the temp with the gun then wait till it gets a little hotter outside or drive the car really hard then check the bottom hose of the radiator. I am a good owner so I make sure that if its not like the book says I will fix/change it to make it right. Most people are not like me I took this car to a mechanic already to get a 2nd opinion and he told me the car is fine everything looks and smells okay so just DRIVE THE F............... CAR MAN. Wow maybe I should go out and do some donuts in his parking lot........
If I did that I would probably end up like your picture I like so much.....lol
