Okay so my car has been running a little hot today. Lower than the 3rd line but still higher then the 2nd. So I get home and smell coolant. Pop the hood. Hmm.. looks like coolant is coming from under the upper radiator hose.. I'll just tighten the hose clamp a little.. and KASWOOSH. My legs are covered with 180 degree coolant. Or is is hotter since it's steam. well, shit. Anyway, the good news is that I wore jeans and the flannel boxers today - thank God for casual Friday. The bad news is that I burned the shit out of my hands and legs and I still need a new Radiator. I called fluidyne and they said it's gonna be june/july before the aluminum one is ready. I seem to remember reading a post in the last couple months from someone who bought a replacement unit from one of the national chains. I couldn't find it in 15 mins of searching so maybe not..
Anyway, if anyone has any new leads since the last time this thread surfaced, please let us know.

Oh, and don't do what I did.

-Matt
