^^^ met up with media graphics (really cool guy btw) last week. He observed that my main coolant reservoir cap was rated at 88Kpa when it shud be 108kpa and radiator cap replacement was rated at 127kpa when it should be 137kpa. Keeping fingers crossed that caps were the problem. Haven't re- installed thermostat yet. Wish I had a lift in meh yard...lol
Its worse than gone bad, it gone completely and high temp silicone used to seal...but not too well. Made this one using oil filter seal. Will see how it goes. I believe that this may be better than the original due to it being thicker and designed to take high temps. It was taken from a used filter btw. Will still like to get original just in case.
