Plenty of chips. I just touch them up. Except for the gill area. I don't have enough time in my day to do all that touch up.

I didn't either. And I played thru the gears a good number of times on the way home. No odd smells, nothing.

My hopes are that a hose is junk and allowed the reservoir to drain out, now its just doesn't have enough coolant so its now providing max cooling.

Time will tell.

Your reservoir tank really doesn't have anything to do with cooling other than keeping the radiator full. It just catches coolant if you're hot enough to blow off steam and then the radiator sucks it back in as it cools

Ya...but its still a closed system. We'll see what happens.

Refill it and let it idle in the driveway with the AC off. I have a feeling that if there is a leak, it'll show when the coolant starts getting hot again.

Listen to Witt. He's an Engineer

Come to think of it, aren't most of the people here some sort of engineer?

I play one at work. I'm a redneck clinging to my bible, hot rods and guns at home.

My diploma says Mechanical Engineering...that's about the extent of my engineering background.

I was a CADD drafter, about a year away from being a civil engineer. School was being paid for by an engineering firm. then I realized I didn't like sitting in a cubical all day. So I find a new job and i end up sitting somewhere else all day. Go figure.

I'm a mechanical engineer.

Went in, guy says I'll be out in a minute (riiiight). Comes back few minutes later saying I'm low on coolant and he doesn't know why quite yet (sherlock Holmes moment). So they are keeping her over night. Rain tomorrow....goodbye wax job
