It's a 4.4 I checked for the obvious but i'm having trouble getting some work done in the car due to all this rain. I may end up taking it to the shop. I found the Valley Pan online for 80 bucks ( prefer to buy it rather than making one out of black silicone.). Car is not over heating but my GF grabbed my car without telling me ... sure enough, I received a call from her, " your car has white smoke coming from the top, it smells like coolant but I don't see the gauge over heating. I pulled over and wait for it to cool off.". I am assuming this is from the coolant coming out from the pan? ( I will have to take some time to post pictures and once i get a diagnostic from the shop.) I should have bought a pressure testing kit......
