The wagon went under the wrench this morning and the mechanic diagnosed it as a sticking thermostat; he said the temp of the radiator hoses can be used to tell if there's flow or not. So far the problem has not showed itself.

35 : Thermostat+seal
5 : Coolant
102 : Labor

Had them do an oil service while they were at it, so that added about $40.

Total damage: $182
